Belone belone


The garfish are generally pelagic but I've seen them hanging around reefs in the surface, like in this spotting. They are vicious looking, resembling a cross between needlefish and barracuda, but do no intentional harm. Garfish are part of the needle fish family and have the characteristic sharp beak.


Open ocean, usually seen in surface waters.
