Ctenolucius hujeta, also known as the rocket gar, is a slender, medium-sized freshwater fish found in Venezuela and Colombia, where it is known as “agujeta”; Spanish for “shoelace”. Large specimens can reach 12 inches in length. This carnivorous predator, fast yet timid, feeds mainly on small fish. It spends most of its time in the upper layer of the water, very near the surface, in small schools that tend to become smaller as individuals grow and separate.
