Eastern Seaboard Swordfish (US/Canada)
Swordfish is a highly migratory, predatory fish characterized by a long, flat bill. They are harvested worldwide in deep temperate and tropical seas year-round. Swordfish is low in calories (130 calories per 3 oz.) and high in protein (22g). It is mildly sweet with a moist, meaty texture and moderately high fat content. The flesh can range from white/ivory to pink or orange. The color variations do not reflect quality. All swordfish meat turns beige in color after cooking.
FDA note: Swordfish have high levels of methyl-mercury, so the FDA advises that pregnant women, nursing women, women of childbearing age, and young children avoid eating swordfish.
