globefish

Here is my best explanation:

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

'theatre's search' is the wordplay.
'theatre' becomes 'globe' (I've seen this before).
'search' becomes 'fish' (fishing is a kind of searching).
'globe'+'fish'='GLOBEFISH'

'for' acts as a link.
