The white marlin is one of the several sea dwellers belonging to the “billfishes” group. These fish are easily identifiable by their distinctively long and sharp upper jaw, also known as a bill. The white marlin’s body is also distinctive, being dark blue above and a silvery-white of sorts on the bottom. They are often misconstrued as being roundscale spearfish but this an incorrect identification as white marlin has, among other differentiating features, a more rigid scale.
With their size and unique bill, the white marlin has the pleasure of being near the top of the food chain. It will take on any prey that is manageable based on the fish’s weight, including mahi-mahi, squid, and flying fish. They are also known to join forces with other predators to forage for food. However, the white marlin is typically a loner.
Should you hook a white marlin, expect a fierce fight. The fish will leap out of the water and whip its tail around. Its sharp bill can also prove dangerous.
