MAFF Minimum Size: Shore:
Very similar profile to the needle fishes, such as the garfish. It is however readily distinguished from them, by the presence of some 5 to 6 finlets running from the anal and dorsal fins, back towards the tail fin. The body also appears to be more flattened, with shorter jaws and finer teeth. Colouration of the back is that of an olive green to greenish blue, with a bright silver band just above the midline.The lower sides and belly are silver with golden hues.
