Scientific name: Coryphaena hippurus<

  • The common English name of dolphin causes much confusion. The fish is called mahi-mahi in the Hawaiian language, and "mahi mahi" is commonly used elsewhere.
  • Mahi-mahi can live up to 5 years, although they seldom exceed four. Catches average 7 to 13 kilograms (15 to 29 lb). They seldom exceed 15 kilograms (33 lb), and mahi-mahi over 18 kilograms (40 lb) are exceptional.
  • Mahi-mahi are highly sought for sport fishing and commercial purposes. Sport fishermen seek them due to their beauty, size, food quality, and healthy population. Mahi-mahi is popular in many restaurants.
  • Spinning, baitcasting or fly-casters may especially seek frigatebirds to find big mahi-mahis, and then use a bait-and-switch technique. Once on a line, mahi-mahi are fast, flashy and acrobatic, with beautiful blue, yellow, green and even red dots of color.
