This large food and sport fish is found in temperate waters throughout the world. Swordfish average between 200 and 600 pounds, though some specimens caught weigh over 1,000 pounds.
They have a distinctive sail like dorsal fin and a striking sword like projection extending from the upper jaw.
Their mild-flavoured, moderately fat fish is firm, dense and meat like, making swordfish a very popular fish. Fresh and frozen swordfish are sold in steaks and chunks. Because it’s so firm, swordfish can be prepared in almost any manner including sautéing, grilling, broiling, baking and poaching.
