I have heard that swordfish is accepted as kosher among liberal rabbis
but is considered traif by Orthodox rabbis and that there is an ongoing
debate about this point. I am not sure, but think that the source of the
issue may be that the fish has scales for part of its life and then loses
the scales at another point (??) Can anyone tell me more?
