The swordfish (Xiphias gladius) in Chile's central zone is associated to certain temperatures from waters of oceanic origin rather than to thermal discontinuities formed between them and the shoreward waters. These features of the sea surface are visualized from the temperature (SST) images produced from NOAA satellite data, in spite of the cloud contamination problem.
