- Marlin are rarely sought by commercial fishers but often end up as unintended targets (bycatch) of tuna and swordfish longline fisheries.
- There has been little study on the abundance of marlins, but most scientists believe that all marlin species are in decline from being heavily fished and poorly managed worldwide.
