Whopper! I should get this stuffed!

A big swordfish is an abnormally large raw swordfish caught while fishing at any cage/harpoon fishing spot, it is obtainable by both barbarian fishing and by normally fishing swordfish using a harpoon. Since players can only get it while fishing for swordfish, it requires 50 Fishing to obtain. It is a fairly rare catch (1/2500), and wearing a ring of wealth will not raise the chances of obtaining one.

To stuff the big swordfish, players must take it to the Taxidermist in Canifis. She will charge the player 2,500 coins and turn it into a stuffed swordfish. Once it is stuffed, players can mount it in their Skill Hall at 56 Construction, using a stuffed swordfish and 2 teak planks, producing a mounted swordfish.


  • Previously, if a player attempted to cook a big swordfish they would get the message "You don't have any more swordfish to cook." Now when attempting to cook big swordfish, players will receive the normal XP as if they had cooked a raw swordfish, and they will receive a cooked swordfish as if they had cooked a raw swordfish, as long as they don't burn it. 
  • Whenever you catch a big swordfish you will receive the message: "You catch an enormous swordfish!"
