El estudio de vertebras fue determinante para la identificacion taxonomica en especimenes de Xiphias gladius, pues estas poseen rasgos muy caracteristicos y propios que la diferencian de las otras especies de la familia Istiophoridae
(Gregory y Conrad 1937; Nakamura 1985).

In the Hawaii commercial longline, troll, and handline fisheries for highly migratory pelagic species, both dolphinfish (mahimahi), Coryphaena hippurus, and wahoo (ono), Acanthocybium solandri, are incidentally caught and are of secondary importance to tunas, Scombridae, and billfishes, Istiophoridae
. Their relative abundance, market demand, and relatively smaller size contribute to their secondary role.
These billfish species, as well as all others included in the family Istiophoridae
, are dioecious (separate sexes) and none of them are known to display sexual dimorphism or dichromatism, but females of many species reach a larger size than males (Nakamura, 1985).
By the end of the active tracking of fish 4, approximately 300 dolphinfish, a large school of small yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares), and at least 1 marlin (Istiophoridae
) were observed to also be associated with debris.

Abstract.--A nearly complete fossil skull, including the rostrum, of blue marlin, Makaira nigricans Lacepede, 1802 (Perciformes: Xiphioidei: Istiophoridae
), was collected from the Oso Member (latest Miocene) of the Capistrano Formation, Mission Viejo, Orange County, California.
Four billfish species (Family Istiophoridae
) range the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent waters of the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico: sailfish, Istiophorus platypterus; blue marlin, Makaira nigricans; white marlin, Tetrapturus albidus; and longbill spearfish, Tetrapturus pfluegeri (Robins and Ray, 1986).
Recreational fishing gear used to catch wahoo (either intentionally or incidentally) off eastern Australia varies considerably among individual fishermen and includes heavy tackle, large hooks, baits, and lures used for targeting large marlins (Istiophoridae
) and light tackle and smaller terminal equipment used to specifically target wahoo and similar-size mackerels and tunas.

Abstract.--A large fossil skull and several rostra of Makaira nigricans Lacepede, 1802 (Perciformes: Istiophoridae
), as well as some less diagnostic istiophorid remains, have been recovered from the middle facies of the Trinidad Formation near Rancho Algodones, San Jose del Cabo Basin, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Straits of Florida A 17-station transect crossing the Straits of Florida at 25.5[degrees]N was sampled as part of a larval billfish (Istiophoridae
and Xiphiidae) project conducted by researchers at the University of Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
