The swordfish ( Xiphias gladius ) is a marine bony fish, the only species of the Xiphiidae family. It is present in the tropical, subtropical and temperate zones of all oceans, as well as in the Mediterranean and Black seas. Given the cosmopolitan diffusion of the species, it is considered to be at low risk of extinction. The most exploited population is that of the Mediterranean Sea which is subject to strong overfishing which is reducing the number of catches and the size of individuals.
