NOAA Photo Library Image - fish9980

Investigation of the distribution and abundance of swordfish along the Atlantic Continental Shelf and slope has helped establishing a new longline fishery for swordfish. This longline catch of 18 swordfish on the BCF ship DELAWARE was the result of one night's fishing at the edge of the continental shelf south of Cape Cod.
