Atlantic Cutlassfish

Latin Name:  Trichiurus lepturus

General Size:  31" x 6"

The Atlantic Cutlassfish derives its name from its long and slender yet curved shape –much like that of a cutlass sword. Sometimes called a “ribbonfish” this species is found in the Atlantic, Pacific as well as the Indian Ocean. In Florida cutlassfish are sought after by offshore anglers because they make great king mackerel bait and can sell from $2.00 to $6.00 each. Cutlassfish can be seen feeding at night near the surface of the water. They will “hang” under the surface vertically (head up, tail down) waiting for prey such as small fish and shrimp to pass by.
