Dolphin Fish or Mahi Mahi (Coryphaenidae hippurus) Photographs and Information



Mahi-mahi are highly sought for sport fishing and commercial purposes. Sport fishermen seek mahi-mahi due to their beauty, size, food quality, and healthy population.  Mahi-mahi can be found in Australia,  the Caribbean Sea, on the west coast of North and South America, the pacific coast of Costa Rica, the Gulf of Mexico, Southeast Asia, Hawaiʻi and many other places worldwide.

They are taken on lures and live baits, and are usually found around floating objects such as wood, seaweed, fish buoys at sea. Frigate bird diving can also be an indication of the presence of Dolphinfish Mahi Mahi when there is debris in the water.  Watch for flying fish. These fish are a favourite meal for mahi-mahi.

Mahi-mahi are carnivorous, feeding on flying fish, crabs, squid, mackerel, and other small fish. They have also been known to eat zooplankton, squid, and crustaceans.

Thirty- to 50-pound gear is more than adequate for trolling for mahi-mahi. Fly-casters may especially seek frigatebirds to find big mahi-mahis and then use a bait-and-switch technique. Ballyhoo or a net full of live sardines tossed into the water can excite the mahi-mahis into a feeding frenzy. Hook-less teaser lures can have the same effect. After tossing the teasers or live chum, fishermen throw the fly to the feeding mahi-mahi. Once on a line, mahi-mahi are fast, flashy and acrobatic, with beautiful blue, yellow, green and even red dots of colour.

Sport catches average 7 to 13 kg (15 to 25 pounds). Though they can grow to be up to 45 kg (90 pounds) any Mahi-mahi over 40 pounds is exceptional.

Angling for Mahi Mahi | Fishing for Mahi Mahi:

Mahi-mahi are highly sought for sport fishing and commercial purposes. Sport fishermen seek mahi-mahi due to their beauty, size, food quality, and healthy population.  Mahi-mahi can be found in Australia,  the Caribbean Sea, on the west coast of North and South America, the pacific coast of Costa Rica, the Gulf of Mexico, Southeast Asia, Hawaiʻi and many other places worldwide. They are taken on lures and live baits , and are usually found around floating objects such as wood, seaweed, fish buoys at sea. Frigate bird diving can also be an indication of the presence of Dolphinfish Mahi Mahi when there is debris in the water.  Watch for flying fish. These fish are a favourite meal for mahi-mahi.

 


Cooking Mahi Mahi:

Dolphinfish are excellent eating table fish. Grilled, blackened, or baked are the most common ways to prepare Mahi fish. Dolphin is low in saturated fat and is a good source of vitamin B12, phosphorus, and potassium and a very good source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, and selenium.


Commercial Fishing for Mahi Mahi, Dolphinfish, Dolphin Fish, Dorado, (Coryphaenidae hippurus):

Although not related to dolphins, Mahi Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) was originally marketed under the name “Dolphin Fish.” The name caused wide-spread consumer concern, so the “Dolphin Fish” was renamed Mahi Mahi and consumer acceptance and commercial sales began to increase. Most Mahi Mahi comes from commercial wild marine fisheries caught by trolling, and to a lesser extent by pole and line.
