UK Record Weights from rod/line:
MAFF Minimum Size: Shore:
Distinctive needle fish outline, with its long slender body, and greatly extended upper and lower jaws, forming the needle beak. The jaws are set with numerous small teeth along their length.
Both the dorsal and anal fins are located back towards the tail fin. Both have a set of high ridged anterior rays that fall away rapidly to the shorter posterior ones. No finlets are to be found between these fins and the tail fin.The pelvic fin is also set well down the dody, and is greatly diminished in size.
The back and upper sides range from a bright green to darkish blue in colouration, with the lower sides and belly being silver. A yellowish golden hue is often attributed to the anal and pelvic fins, as well as the side and belly regions.
