How many inches is a swordfish?
Size and Lifespan: Adult swordfish can grow to 177 inches in length and weigh up to 1,400 pounds. Females tend to be larger then males. Pacific swordfish are the largest of their kind. West Atlantic swordfish are no more then 700 pounds. Mediterranean swordfish weigh up to 500 pounds. Swordfish lifespan reaches 9 years, and they reach sexual maturity at around 5 years.
Unfortunately, they generally don't. A female swordfish releases as many as 1 million eggs into water after fertilization, and they are kept afloat on the surface by means of a drop of oil surrounding their egg. Young swordfish typically have to fend for themselves. There have actually been many cases of a swordfish eating their own young (Cannibalism).
