Primarily found in the temperate waters of the tropical regions of the Atlantic Ocean, the Blue marlin prefers to stay in the warm waters near the surface, above the thermocline, making it one of the most popular catch even among expert fishermen.
They can be found in open waters far from the coastline and in deep water regions such as the Missisipi River’s mouth connecting with the gulf of Mexico, and a couple of miles from the beautiful Cancun.
