Big swordfish detail.png

A big swordfish is an abnormally large swordfish caught, while fishing for swordfish, at any cage/harpoon fishing spot. It is obtainable by both barbarian fishing and by normally fishing swordfish using a harpoon. Since players can only get it while fishing for swordfish, it requires 50 Fishing to catch. Big swordfish are a very rare catch (1/2,500)[1], and catching one prompts the message You catch an enormous swordfish! instead of the usual You catch a swordfish. If fishing with a fish barrel, a big swordfish caught will be placed into your inventory.[2]

It can be mounted in a Skill Hall in a player-owned house. Before it can be mounted, it must be stuffed by the Taxidermist in Canifis, where she will charge 2,500 coins and return a stuffed big swordfish to the player. Players with level 56 Construction can mount the fish using 2 teak planks. When players take it to the Taxidermist, she will exclaim "Don't point that thing at me!"

A big swordfish may be cooked into a regular swordfish for the standard cooking experience.

The benefits of Rada's blessing and spirit flakes can allow someone to catch two big swordfishes at once in case either item activates.[3]
