Dont know much about Swordfish?
This large fish with a long, flat, sword-like upper jaw is available wild-caught. It is a nomadic marine fish found in the open ocean right around the Australian coast, hunting near the surface mainly at night but also capable of diving to depths of at least 600m. It is caught mainly by tuna longliners off the east and west coasts. Though similar in appearance to marlin it is easily distinguished by its longer, flattened ‘sword’ and lack of scales.

Swordfish is one of the meatiest fish you will find in the seafood case. The flesh is commonly cut into “steaks,” making this fish ideal for grilling and skewering, as well as other cooking methods that don’t fare well with more delicate fish varieties. The mildly sweet flavor is perfect for the addition of marinades and sauces, and the cooked fish results in a moist, somewhat meat-like texture (as long as the swordfish steaks are not overcooked).

  • A good array of locally caught wet fish and a superb take away with outside covered seating. Was recommended to us as the best fish and chips in town and we would agree.
