A huge oceanic fish capable of great speed. It has a long, sharp snout used for slashing its prey.

Marlins are a species of large fish who can be found in temperate and tropical oceans. They are quite large, over 13 times heavier than a dwarf, and as such provide a great amount of returns when butchered. As non-vermin fish, marlins can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with the use of a drowning chamber. Infant marlins are called marlin fry.

Some dwarves like marlins for their sharp snout.

Admired for its sharp snout.
