Swordish can weigh as much as 550 kilograms or 1213 pounds, but this is quite uncommon. Here are the details:
Swordish rarely weight over 200 kg/441 pounds. In fact, those caught in commercial fisheries typically weight between 90 kg/198 pounds and 150kg/ 331 lbs. As a length, this would translate into about 4.5 meters or 15 feet for the heavier exemplars. In this category, “the largest one to be caught on a tackle weighted 274 kg [/604 pounds].”
However, it is possible in some occasions to find much bigger Swordfish: for instance, the largest swordfish to be recorded in the North Atlantic Ocean weighted 550 kilograms or 1212.5 pounds.
A last interesting fact: female swordfish are heavier than male ones.
Swordfish may reach up to 15 feet long, and weigh up to half a ton (1000 pounds). However, a specimen half this size is considered large, by biologist and fisherman standards. Swordfish, which are found in the warmer waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, are relatives of the sailfish, and are often mistaken for them; this fish, however, can only reach up to 10 feet in length, and weigh up to 200 pounds.
