The bluefish is located in most of the world’s subtropical and temperate waters with the exception of the northern Pacific Ocean. In other parts of the world, it goes by other names like elf, shad, tailor, chopper, anchoa, or simply, blue.
Recognized by its broad, forked tail, the bluefish is a popular gamefish and it ranges extensively in size. The smaller “snapper” is about seven inches but the bluefish, in general, has been known to weigh as much as forty pounds in some cases.
With their sharp, single row of knife-edged teeth, the bluefish is known for being strong and aggressive, often hanging out in loose groups. As fast swimmers, they are often seen preying on forage fish, attacking them in fierce frenzies. In fact, the fish is so aggressive, there are instances where it can turn to cannibalism or consume its young.
Because of their aggressiveness, it is strongly recommended to handle bluefish with the utmost of care as they can very easily snap at a person’s hands. There are many stories of fishermen being bitten severely and you don’t want to be in the water when schools of bluefish are feeding.
