In September and through October, the swordfish off the coast of Nova Scotia in the Emerald Basin are feeding heavily in preparation for their winter migration south into the Caribbean.
Excellent quality large swordfish loins are less than 75 cents an ounce this week, putting a 6-ounce portion on a plate for just over $4. That is a fabulous-tasting fish for a fabulous price. In general, large swordfish loins will be a bargain for the next 7-8 weeks.
Prices are subject to change.
