King Sailfish Mounts are now available online. King Sailfish Mounts individually crafts each finely detailed mounted fish by hand, one-at-a-time. Every reproduction is airbrushed to resemble that species' most vivid and striking color patterns. Initially formed to promote the release of local Atlantic sailfish, King Sailfish continues to be the leader in Marine Conservation.
Atlantic Sailfish occur in tropical and subtropical waters near land masses, usually in depths of over 100 feet, but occasionally are caught from ocean piers close to shore. Pelagic and migratory, Sailfish usually travel alone or in small groups. Its outstanding feature is the high first dorsal fin which is cobalt blue with a scattering of round dark spots. Its fighting ability and spectacular aerial aerobatics endear the Sailfish to the saltwater angler. It becomes exhausted quickly and therefore Sailfish are considered a light-tackle species.
Sailfish are released alive by sportsmen and charter captains alike. Recently, populations in south Florida, "The Sailfish Capital of the World", have rebounded. It is not unusual now for anglers to experience multiple strikes and even release up to 6 or 8 Sails in one good day offshore. For mounting purposes, nearly 100 percent of all sailfish mounts are "release mounts" -- produced without using the actual fish or any parts thereof.
