Hi:
Yep, there's such a fish. Actually, there are two critters that can hang
off humpbacks and some other whales at times: the remora and the lamprey.
If you search on these names on the Web you should find some information on
them. I dont now anything about the biology of the fish, but I've seen
them both; remoras are very common in the tropics, where humpbacks mate and
calve.

Hope this helps!
