This is my first fish that I’m writing about.

I chose swordfish, because they look cool with their really long sword-like bill.

Here are 5 interesting facts about them:

  1. Their swords are razor sharp and they use them to slice their prey in half.
  2. They are one of the fastest fish in the ocean and have been timed at over 50 miles per hour.
  3. Unlike most fish, swordfish have no scales and no teeth.
  4. Their only predators are large sharks, orca and humans.
  5. As a species, they aren’t under threat, but the numbers in the Atlantic Ocean are considered endangered due to over-fishing.

I hope that you found these facts interesting and learned something new.

Are there any interesting facts that you would like to share about swordfish?
