SwordFish Facts

They are a popular sport fish of the billfish category, though elusive. Swordfish is elongated, round-bodied, and lose all teeth and scales by adulthood. Swordfish are quite large. The biggest specimen ever caught weighed 1190 pounds and was over 14 feet long, measured from the tip of its sword to the tip of its tail.

The average swordfish is somewhat smaller, generally weighing between two hundred and two hundred and fifty pounds. Swordfish are built for speed: adult members of the species have no pelvic fins, no scales, and a rounded shape to help them move through the water. Adults vary in color, but are generally grayish-blue to dark bronze on their backs and fins, and white or off-white on their bellies.
