Catching a swordfish grants 100 Fishing experience. Fishing for swordfish takes a longer amount of time than lobsters because Tuna is caught along with it. Free players fishing on Karamja generally drop their tuna (often cooking it first for the experience), but the members-only fishing spots in Catherby, Piscarilius House, Jatizso and the Fishing Guild are close enough to banks that it is actually faster for players to bank the raw tuna than to drop it. Cooking Swordfish will grant 140 experience.
Raw swordfish can be fished from the sea with a harpoon. When harpoon fishing, it is very likely that more tuna will be caught than swordfish at levels below 60.
Five raw swordfish can be obtained when opening the crystal chest.
