Some Striped Marlin Facts
 
While the striped marlin is a big fish (the current record weight is 190 kg/ 420 lb), it one of the smaller marlin species. It inhabits tropical, subtropical and temperate Indo-Pacific waters, where it is known to migrate great distances. Unlike other billfishes (and tunas), the striped marlin's distribution in the Pacific Ocean forms a horseshoe-shaped pattern from the northwest Pacific through the eastern Pacific to the southwest Pacific. In the Indian Ocean, striped marlin are found more often in equatorial regions. The species is generally solitary, except during spawning season when it forms small schools. 
 
Conservation and Sustainability
 
The striped marlin fishery is an important commercial and recreational fishery. Of all the billfishes, striped marlin are considered the best when it comes to sashimi and sushi, but there are sustainability concerns. In particular, bycatch is a considerable problem with many striped marlin taken as bycatch in the pelagic longline tuna fisheries. IUCN estimates that the species has declined 20-25% over the last 16 years. It is listed as Near Threatened by IUCN.
