Abstract
    This article reports on four different juvenile reef fish species, Polydactylus virginicus, Haemulon aurolineatum, H. steindachneri and Carangoides bartholomaei swimming along with schools of the caribbean reef squid Sepioteuthis sepioidea. Three different behaviours were observed. This is the first record of this squid species on Brazilian reef habitats. We suggest that this behaviour is mainly related to protection for juvenile fish against potential pelagic predators.
