Mahi Mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, is a species of fish found in tropical and subtropical waters around the world. They are highly sought after by sport and commercial fishermen for their firm, white flesh and colorful appearance.
Mahi Mahi are typically found in the open ocean, near floating debris or structures such as buoys and weed lines. They can grow up to 6 feet in length and weigh up to 80 pounds, although most fish caught are between 15-30 pounds.
These fish are known for their vibrant colors, with a bright blue-green back and golden sides. They are also known for their acrobatic displays when hooked, often leaping out of the water and shaking their heads to try and throw the hook.
Mahi Mahi are opportunistic predators, feeding on a wide variety of fish, squid, and crustaceans. They are also known to eat flying fish and small tuna.
In terms of sustainability, Mahi Mahi populations are generally considered to be healthy and well-managed, with many fisheries implementing measures such as size and bag limits to ensure the long-term viability of the species.
