Garfish (lat. Belone) or "sea pike" is a fish of the genus garfish.

Common garfish - sea, schooling, pelagic fish, i.e. living in the thickness and at the surface of the water. The garfish has a very elongated and narrow body, reminiscent of the body of an eel or needle fish. The scales are very small, pearly-shiny. The jaws are very elongated, forming a characteristic "beak" resembling that of a pterodactyl. Small sharp teeth on the beak allow the garfish to grab small prey - fish and crustaceans during fast swimming. In large numbers, garfish are found in the Black and other seas. There are many subspecies. In the Seychelles, it comes across when trolling, casting and fly fishing.
