Crossword Genius

Soprano with energy, a singer and swimmer (3,4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sea bass

Here is my best explanation:

'swimmer' is the definition.

(sea bass is a kind of fish)

'soprano with energy a singer' is the subsidiary indication.

'soprano' becomes 's' (musical abbreviation).

'with' says to put letters next to each other.

'energy' becomes 'e' (symbol in physics e.g. in Einstein's famous e=mca).

'singer' becomes 'bass' (bass is a kind of singer**).

's'+'e'+'a'+'bass'='seabass'

'and' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for sea bass that I've seen before include "Fish", "Edible marine fish", "Saltwater fish", "Marine food fish", "one showing off plenty of scales" and "Food fish".)
