Captare of a Monster Swoord-fish. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Post — 1 May 1884

Capture of a Monster Sword-fish. On Sunday last, some Chinese fishermen whilst fishing in the bay, towards the mouth of the Barron River, captured in their nets a gigantic sword-fish, measuring 26ft from point of sword to tail, and estimated to weigh nearly a ton. It was with the greatest difficulty that the monster was despatched, and then not until much damage had been done to the nets, and one Chinaman severely cut on the arm by the teeth with which the sword is armed.- The sword was purchased from the fishermen by Mr. L. Severin, who has kindly placed it at our disposal for ex- hibition at the office of the POST, where it can now be inspected. This formidable weapon of the marine monster has been severed from the fish at the snout, and mea- sures 3ft 9in length, and has a breadth at   the base of 12in, from which it tapers to a blunt point measuring, from point to point of the two first teeth, 7½in. The weight of the sword is rather 0ver 15lb. The teeth with which i...
