Atlantic Sailfish. Atlantic Sailfish occur in tropical and subtropical waters near land masses, usually in depths of over 100 feet, but occasionally are caught from ocean piers close to shore. Pelagic and migratory, Sailfish usually travel alone or in small groups. Its outstanding feature is the high first dorsal fin which is cobalt blue with a scattering of round dark spots. Its fighting ability and spectacular aerial aerobatics endear the Sailfish to the saltwater angler. It becomes exhausted quickly and therefore Sailfish are considered a light-tackle species.
Conservation. Sailfish are released alive by sportsmen and charter captains alike. Recently, populations in south Florida, "The Sailfish Capital of the World", have rebounded. It is not unusual now for anglers to experience multiple strikes and even release up to 6 or 8 Sails in one good day offshore. For mounting purposes, nearly 100 percent of all sailfish mounts are "release mounts" -- produced without using the actual fish or any parts thereof.
Atlantic vs. Pacific. Atlantic Sailfish on average are smaller than their cousins in the Pacific. Although the two both have bright blue dorsal fins, they differ somewhat in coloration. Generally, we use lighter colors on the Atlantic Sailfish, including those shades found on the dorsal fin. We use more of a powder blue color on the vertical stripes that run down the side of the body and often apply lighter shades of bronze to the mid section that fade into the silver/white colors below. The operculum (gill cover) is more bronze while the upper back remains bright transparent blue with more turquoise.
