Blue Marlin. A migratory and pelagic species, Blue Marlin occur in tropical and warm oceanic temperate waters. It is found in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. Blue Marlin apparently grow larger in the Pacific. All giant marlins are females and male blues rarely reach over 300 pounds. The pectoral fins of the blue marlin are not rigid, and can be folded against the side of the body, opposed to the rigid fins of the black marlin. There are no spots on the fins. A powerful and aggressive fighter, Blue Marlin run long and hard, sound deep and leap high into the air with seemingly unexhaustable strength. Nearly all sportfishermen release blue marlin alive and unharmed, and choose a release mount to commemorate that once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The Eye! The single most important visual aspect of the blue marlin mount is the eye. The eye of the blue marlin has a piercing look which you can actually "feel". This must be replicated in order for the mount to look authentic.
