These fish, when disturbed, were found to take shelter under the bell of the medusae. Judging from their movements, however, it may be mentioned that they seem to be cautious while moving about inside the bell, probably to avoid the stinging cells of the medusae. It is weIl-known that several species of carangids gather around floating objects such as, pieces of wood, coconut shell, medusae, etc_ and the principle of lure-line fishing is basea on this peculiar habit of carangids.
