Golet confirms swordfish in waters off Scotland’s Angus coast

The Courier in Dundee, Scotland interviewed Walter Golet, a research assistant professor in the University of Maine School of Marine Sciences, about a swordfish recently spotted in Scottish waters by members of an aerial surveying crew. It’s reportedly only the second time a swordfish has been confirmed in the area. “Swordfish have a huge latitudinal range and by the picture it appears to have a flat bill, and marlins (the only other confusion species) are all round,” said Golet. Renews.biz and Energy Voice also reported on the swordfish and the BBC indicated that swordfish normally are in the warmer waters of the Caribbean or Mediterranean.
