Mahi-mahi

Mahi-mahi are surface-dwelling fish found in off-shore temperate, tropical and sub-tropical waters worldwide. Mahi-mahi are also known as Dolphin-fish or Dorado. They have a long dorsal fin extending almost the entire length of their body and are characterized by dazzling colors: golden on the side, and bright blues and greens on the sides and back. Mahi-mahi have a lifespan of 4 to 5 years and average 15-30 pounds. They tend to hang out around floating debris and buoys, and feed on flying fish, crabs, squid, mackeral and other forage fish. Once hooked, Mahi-mahi are fast, flashy and acrobatic.
