The Striped Marlin is a much more common catch in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, but is occasionally captured by offshore anglers on the East Coast. Its high, pointed dorsal fin, and brilliant blue vertical stripes on its sides when excited (known as "lit up"), make the species fairly easy to distinguish. Unfortunately, its brilliant coloration often fades shortly after death.
