Sailfish caught August 2015
Tienie Oosthuisen & friends caught this beautiful fish that I wanted to share with you. Caught in Khorfakkan on 28 August 2015, the pictures speak for themselves.
The sailfish is the fastest fish in the ocean. They can reach speeds of up to 68mph/110kmph.
Members of the billfish family, hence their long, jutting upper jaw.
Their population is stable for now.
Prized as a game or trophy fish, they are not good eating which encourages catch & release & may partly account for their stable numbers
They get their name from their spectacular dorsal fin
Well done, boys! Tight lines xXx
