A huge predatory fish found in open ocean. It has a long pointed bill which it uses to slash and ram.

Swordfish are a species of large fish who can be found in temperate and tropical oceans. They are quite large, over 10 times heavier than a dwarf, and as such provide a great amount of returns when butchered. As non-vermin fish, swordfish can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with the use of a drowning chamber. Infant swordfish are called swordfish fry.

Some dwarves like swordfish for their sharp snout.
