A Raw swordfish is a type of fish players can catch with at least level 50 Fishing, granting 100 Fishing experience per catch. With at least level 45 Cooking a raw swordfish can be cooked to gain 140 Cooking experience on a range and 154 over a bonfire. Players stop burning swordfish at level 86 cooking, or at level 81 cooking with Cooking gauntlets.
Swordfish are caught by using a harpoon at a cage/harpoon fishing spot. Players will catch a mixture of raw swordfish and raw tuna. Of 4500 fish caught at 99 fishing 2172 were swordfish, giving an average swordfish catch rate of 48.27%. After completing barbarian fishing training players can catch raw swordifsh and tuna barehanded. This gives 10 Strength experience for each swordfish caught. With at least 50 Agility two swordfish can be caught at once, although experience is only gained for a single one. Swordfish gloves, obtainable through the Fist of Guthix minigame, can be used to gain additional experience while fishing swordfish. A big swordfish may be caught while fishing. These can be hung up in a Skill Hall in player-owned houses by those with level 56 Construction.
Noted raw swordfish can sometimes be found inside barrels.
