Shortbill Spearfish are commonly known as Hebi here in Hawaii. 
The shortbill spearfish is a species of Marlin native to Pacific Ocean and abound around the Hawaiian Islands. Call 808-879-6260 to go fishing for Marlin in Hawaii. 

The Spearfish Marlin's dorsal fin is shorter than other Bill-fish species, and its bill is very short in comparison. Spearfish can get up to 7 ft. long, however normally max out at 6 ft. or so. Spearfish can also weigh up to 115 pounds!

Hawaiian Spearfish is a sushi grade fish, with a mild flavor that is slightly stronger than Ahi Tuna. 

Here is a recipe i found online:
