Swordfish are an important species to both sport and commercial fishermen. The Swordfish is easily identified by it's long, flat sword, generally much longer than its head. Also noticeable is the absence of pelvic fins and the abscence of scales in adults.

Swordfish are prized table fare for their firm, white meat. They are a deep water species, targeted by Northeastern anglers on offshore trips. Best fishing occurs after sundown, using large, whole squid for bait with a light stick.
