recently saw Marlin on the menu of two local VB restaurants. See swordfish all the time but not a lot of Marlin. One has "Marlin" real big on its sign its right next to my house. I see it everyday and I'm bored what do you guys think?

Does that include Pacific Marlin? I recall reading a similar thread several years ago and the reasoning was that it was Pacific Marlin?
Is the species protected worldwide?

Still legal (unfortunately) to sell Pacific marlin. Ask where it comes from. Most don't know, and just say it's local to impress you w/ how fresh it is.

Had it on the menu at the boardwok on sandbridge road. Had my Billfish foundation t-shirt on (ironic). Waitress was clueless when I inquired about its origin. Had to be pacific , its the only legal fishery. So here in VB they sold it as a special , fresh marlin , what a joke .

What do I think? Sounds like it is Hawaiian marlin - I won't be ordering it at those VB restaurants or buying it at Wegmans here. I don't buy swordfish or shark either for that matter.

Any chance of telling us what restaurants they are?
