Though not usually eaten, sailfish are one of the most sought after fish in the ocean. Powerful and extremely fast, they are known for both their jumping and diving ability and putting up a heck of a fight.
They are members of the billfish family and are generally warm water fish. We see a lot of them here in South Florida. These absolutely beautiful fish are one of our favorites to both catch and craft at our facility in Stuart.
