These massive fish have been known to jump out of the water and land on the fishing boat as they are being reeled in as a final attempt to break free. Many a fisherman has been injured by the sharp point on this beautiful creature, and it has been reported that one young lady had her breast implant punctured by a swordfish. These fish can weigh up to 1,400 lbs, about 650kg and can grow to an astonishing 15 feet, nearly 5 meters in length and can race through the oceans at 80 kilometers per hour. Once a swordfish has been hooked onto a fishing line, it has been known for the animal to dive straight down and embed its sword into the seabed, to act like an anchor.
