Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Epipelagic and oceanic species, usually found above the thermocline. Most dominant and widely distributed of all billfishes. Mostly solitary, but forms small schools by size during the spawning season (Ref. 9987). They are usually dispersed at considerably wide distances. Feeds on fishes, crustaceans and squids. Also caught with the harpoon. The flesh is the best among billfishes for sashimi and sushi. Marketed mostly frozen, sometimes fresh (Ref. 43); also smoked and frozen (Ref. 9987). [details]
