This article is about raw Swordfish. For the cooked form, see Swordfish
A raw swordfish
is a type of fish
that players can catch at level 50 Fishing
Catching a swordfish grants 100 Fishing experience. Fishing for swordfish takes a longer amount of time than lobsters because Tuna is caught along with it. Free players fishing on Karamja generally drop their tuna (often cooking it first for the experience), but the members-only fishing spots in Catherby and the Fishing Guild are close enough to banks that it is actually faster for players to bank the raw tuna than to drop it. Cooking Swordfish will grant 140 experience.
Raw swordfish can be fished from the sea with a harpoon. When harpoon fishing, it is very likely that more tuna will be caught than swordfish at levels below 60.
Barbarian fishing is another possible option when fishing for swordfish. Hand fishing gives an extra 10 Strength experience for each swordfish, and requires level 70 Fishing and level 50 Strength.
Lucky players may also receive a big swordfish while fishing. These are hung up in a Skill Hall in player-owned houses for those with level 56 Construction or above.
