Feeding Ecology And Diet

Feeding behavior has been observed by fishermen: One or several sailfish locate a school of prey fish (such as sardines, anchovies, mackerel, or jack mackerel) and pursue the school at half speed with their fins half-folded back into the grooves. They then drive at the prey at full speed with fins completely folded back and make sharp turns with fins expanded to confront part of the school and strike the prey with their bills. They feed on the killed or stunned fish, usually head first as well as on a variety of fishes, crustaceans, and squid.
