NOAA Photo Library Image - fish7988

Swordfish caught below surface with longline gear. Exploratory and commercial fishing in the Gulf of Mexico has shown that the fish concentrates in deep water in the fall, winter, and spring off the Mississippi Delta. Profitable catches are being made by U.S. vessels fishing at night.
