Raw swordfish detail

A raw swordfish is a type of fish that players can catch with at least level 50 Fishing, or 70 Fishing and 50 Strength barehanded, granting 100 Fishing experience per catch with an additional 8 Strength experience per barehanded swordfish. 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. Raw swordfish stop being burnt at level 86 cooking, or at level 80 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%. 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. Members may receive a big swordfish while fishing. These can be hung up in a Skill Hall in player-owned houses by those with level 56 Construction.

After completion of the Tower of Life quest, members can create a swordchick by using a raw swordfish and a raw chicken on the appropriate altar.
