Fish Species of the Month- White Marlin

by Captain Steve Smith on 09/09/14

White Marlin are generally found off the east coast of the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean.  Smaller than other species of Marlin it is a very strong fighter.  It is lighter in color and has a body that is dark blue to brown, and a white underbelly with spots on the dorsal fin.



The average size of a White Marlin is about 50 inches, but some catches have been reported with lengths of over 8ft.  They typically roam in deeper waters alone or in small groups.
