Cleaning behaviour

These giants are known to migrate great distances and aggregate at different locations along the coastlines. Aggregation sites often contain rocks or reefs, called cleaning stations, where are living small fishes specialised in removing parasite from other bigger fishes. 

Manta rays regularly visit these “stations” to be cleaned, creating predictable dive sites for eco-tourism industries.
