Bluefish II


A voracious food fish common to the U.S. Atlantic Coast, bluish above and silvery below, two to three feet in length and very destructive to other fish. The first submarine was named for the fish, the second to commemorate the service of Bluefish (SS-222).


Updates pending for 1971 to 1996.

Bluefish was decommissioned on 31 May 1996 and struck from the Navy list on the same day. She was disposed of by recycling on 1 November 2003.
