Coordinated Hunting between Groupers and Morays - Paper!

Watch this.

Very interesting!
There are this and this excellent synopses so I need not elaborate.
I learn that coordinated hunting is apparently different from the widespread cooperative hunting where several species cooperate opportunistically. When I think of those Sea Kraits and Jacks I've seen hunting together in Niue (and apparently elsewhere), it sure looks very very similar - but who am I to say!

Open-access paper here!

We've been observing this in Niue as well.
Probably I have it on Video somewhere
Katuali following one or two Goatfish, but not Jacks like in that Video.
