Here is my best explanation:

'swimmer' is the definition.
(halibut is a kind of aquatic vertebrate)

'bail must be arranged in cabin' is the wordplay.
'must be arranged' indicates an anagram.
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'cabin' becomes 'hut'.
'bail' is an anagram of 'alib'.
'alib' placed into 'hut' is 'HALIBUT'.

'for' is the link.
