Hatchet Marlin. Occurring in the Mediterranean and western Atlantic, hatchet marlin once were considered to be an extremely rare catch. Rumored for years to be a separate billfish species, the “so-called” Hatchet Marlin is actually one of two familiar species: White Marlin or Roundscale Spearfish. According to John Graves, Chancellor Professor of Marine Science, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, “The characters used to distinguish hatchet marlin, truncated dorsal and anal fins, can occur on either species. Most white marlin have rounded dorsal and anal fins, but a fraction do have the truncated type. All roundscale spearfish that I’ve looked at have had truncated fins. The best diagnostic character is the placement of the vent, which is 5-6 inches forward of the start of the anal fin in a roundscale spearfish, and only about 2 inches in front in a white marlin. Also, the branchiostegals are longer in roundscale spearfish, extending almost to the end of the operculum.” More on Hatchet Marlin from John Graves.
