The Atlantic blue marlin, Makaira nigricans, is a species of marlin endemic to the Atlantic Ocean. It is closely related to the Indo-Pacific blue marlin, and some authorities consider them the same species. The Atlantic blue marlin is one of the largest and fastest fish in the ocean, reaching up to 5 meters in length and 800 kilograms in weight. It has a distinctive long bill, a forked tail fin, and a first dorsal fin with a high initial crest that slopes sharply down and runs along most of the back. It is blue-black on the upper body and silvery-white on the lower body, with faint vertical stripes. It feeds on a wide variety of fish and other prey near the surface, using its bill to stun or injure them. It is a highly prized game fish, sought after by anglers and trophy hunters.
