The garpike fish is a coastal common fish in Cyprus. We can find this fish from the shore until the open sea, at a depth of up to 10 metres. During the summer months this type of fish swims in shoals submerging at our shores.
The garpike fish can reach up to 90 cm in length and can exceed 1 kilo in weight but it usually does not exceed 50 cm. It is a very capable hunter and captures its pray with sudden sideway moves of its beak-type mouth. It mainly feeds on small fish.
