Supreme Lobster sources Swordfish (AKA Broadbills) from all around the Globe. These fish have a long beak, resembling a sword, hence the name Swordfish. They can reach the size of up to 15 feet in length and over 1200 LBS, but the market size that we utilize are in the 200 LB range.

During Full Moons, Swordfish are known to dive deeper and become more elusive which makes them harder to catch. This results in higher prices, so always remember to check the Lunar Calendar when looking for Swordfish.
