The swordfish is found in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. It is also referred to as the broadbill. Most of the swordfish caught are juvenile, which is threatening extinction to this magnificent game fish. Concern over high levels of mercury in swordfish may help to prevent demand for this highly prized and delicious meat.
Note about amines: Fresh seafood has low amine levels, but when older than two days the amine content rises to moderate, and any fish that has been frozen has high levels.
