Abstract

We report the 2nd occurrence of a warm water teleost predator, Swordfish (Xiphias gladius), in Canadian Pacific waters, and the first seen in coastal waters of British Columbia. A Swordfish was observed on 5 September 2017 approximately 20 nm (37 km) from the Brooks Peninsula, Vancouver Island, British Columbia (UTM: Zone 9, 560062 E, 5526365 N, WGS84) in above average water temperatures.
