At Two Fish Divers we eat fresh fish from the local catchs. We only buy pelagic fish and never buy reef fish! Yesterday we had a great surprise! A local fisherman came to our beach and showed us his catch of the day: a two meter Sail Fish (Istiophorus platypterus,)! Apparently, this is a very common species here in the Bunaken area. We have seen many small traditional boats fishing this beautiful animal with great success. It is really amazing to see how this little boats can bring up such a big and strong animal.
This time, we bought the whole animal and we had a treat for dinner last night! Grilled steaks of Sail Fish in Coconut saouce! mmmm! yes, it was delicious.
Sailfish are a native of warm regions of oceans worldwide, so they are truly an international entity among sport fishes. They are easily recognized by the large fin that runs from the back of the head to the tail, known as a sail.
Spawning is thought to be in the warmer summer months in water that is fairly shallow, where mating males and females will swim side by side.
Sailfish grow extremely quickly, reaching a length of almost one meter in just a single year. They can live as long as 16 years, a highly migratory species, they have been known to travel as much as 200,000 miles or more in their lifetime.
Nitrox is getting more and more popular!!We had 5 people joining the course last week. Congratulations to Ollie, Mariah, Greg, Scott and Albert for your Nitrox certification! Now you can have longer bottom times and since you are breathing less nitrogen you can enjoy safer dives!!
