This magnificent fish (Marlin Black...1000 kg), is undisputed prized gamefish in Australia. Its fighting qualities are legendary. It is defined by its very thick deep body which is rater rounded near the head, especially in larger fish. It has a short, thick upturned bill. The pectoral fin is always erect. Other fins can be folded and recessed into indentations to streamline the fish, reducing resistance. It is steel-blue above and white below. The flesh is white and good eating
Fish for the future...Size and bag limits exist to ensure sufficient stock of healthy breeding fish remain and the catch is shared fairly among anglers
Floats are very extremly effetive when fishing for some species. This is certainly true for mullet, garfish, tommy ruff and luderick. They can be useful for many other fish too, and really good for fishing in the rocks in Watsons Bay

Look yummy and fresh! Ceasar salad for fish!
