Swordfish, also known as broadbills is an elongated, scaleless fish, with a tall dorsal fin and a long sword which extends from its snout and is used in slashing at prey fishes. The sword is flat, rather than rounded as in marlins and other spear-nosed fishes, and has thus given rise to the name broadbill.
These fish are found widely in tropical and temperate parts of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans
