WHERE DO SWORDFISH LIVE?
Swordfish live throughout much of the world's oceans. They are found in the Indian, Atlantic, Pacific Oceans. They seem to prefer warmer waters, but are found at a variety of temperatures. They can be found at varying depths in the ocean as well, including the surface where they sometimes jump out of the water in an activity called breaching.
WHAT DO SWORDFISH HAVE THAT HELP THEM IN THE WATER?
Besides their long bill and large size, swordfish have a large crescent shaped tail (caudal) fin, a tall front dorsal fin, a second much smaller dorsal fin, and pectoral fins. They have large eyes and no teeth. The top of their body is silvery gray-blue to brown while the bottom or belly is cream colored.
