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

Marlins are enormous (about 800 kilo) sea dwellers which produce a large amount of food when butchered. Unlike many other aquatic animals they produce bones but no skin.

They have fairly high pet value of 500. Consider catching them alive with a fishery.
