Our thanks go to Captain Adam Ogden and Rossano Ricci for providing this photograph of a 50kg broadbill swordfish which they recently tagged and released alongside the boat "Black Widow" in the Seychelles.

This is the first ever broadbill swordfish to have been ABF tagged and released off the Seychelles!

Swordfish tend to cover huge distances and we hope that this tag may lead to another fascinating and important recovery for this commercially harvested billfish species.
