The garfish “the Green”

If any of you would like to dress up for Halloween as the garfish's skeleton, well, you would really cause some confusion! Why? You see, the bones of this fish are green! That is why our garfish gained its nickname of “the Green”. Its mouth is elongated and is finished off with sharp little teeth. It looks like a bird's beak!

From May to June the garfish lives near the shores of The Bay of Puck. Under cover of the night it swims towards the water surface. It’s a very brisk fish. When chased, 'the Green ' can jump out of the water.

Interesting facts

When the garfish wants to have babies it lays hairy and greenish eggs, which attach to the seabed.
