Mahi Mahi, Dolphinfish - Facts and Photos on this Beautiful Fish with Numerous Names

Top Right Solid Corner

Mahi Mahi, Coryphaena hippurus, are sought by "sport" fishermen for the strong fight and spectacular jumps they exhibit when trying to escape from the hooks. Commercial fishermenhunt hunt them for their high market price and abundance. Artists and photographers admire their psychedelic metal-flake colors. Mahi mahi are resistant to overfishing due to their extremely fast growth rate, early maturity, year-round spawning in most of their range, high fecundity, and wide distribution. They are found in coastal waters and on the high seas throughout the tropics and sub-tropics. Only at the north and south extremes of their range is spawning limited to the warmer months. The floating eggs hatch in the open sea, and reach maturity in only 4-5 months at a size of about 8 inches. They live for only 4-5 years. Remarkably, in this age of over-fishing, most populations appear to be in good condition. Their habit of spawning in pairs, rather than larger groups, protects mahimahi from exploitation targeted at breeding aggregations.

Environmental groups ask consumers to consider where and how the fish were caught, as some mahi mahi are taken on longlines, which also kill other wildlife such as as sea turtles, seabirds, and sharks.
