The Barbershop

This video shows a symbiotic relationship between Barberfish and Mexican Goatfish. Local resident and Naturalist, Mary Sim pointed this relationship out four years ago, and minutes later I started trying to capture it on video. After hours and hours of footage hitting the cutting room floor, I finally pulled together a few clips to share. This footage was shot at a place I’ve named, “The Barbershop.” Barberfish come there to pick parasites and the Mexican Goatfish will position themselves vertically, communicating a need for parasite cleaning services.
