Mahi Mahi

Mahi Mahi, Coryphaena hippurus,  is also known as Dolphin fish, or Dorado.  Because people would get Dolphin fish and Dolphin, the large marine mammal, confused, it commonly became known as Mahi Mahi, it’s Hawaiian name.

            Mahi Mahi is a very fast swimmer, reaching speeds up to 50 miles per hour.  It has a long tapering, streamlined body with a ridge of fins running down the body from head to the forked swallow like tail.  The faster the fish swims, the different colors it will change:  from green to gold to silver and gray with  gold and blue spots.

            The Mahi Mahi likes warm water.  It is drawn to objects that float on the water,

            The flesh of the Mahi is firm and white, and has a sweet flavor.  It usually weighs approximately 5 1/2 #.  The skin of the fish is rough and tasteless, and it is recommended that it be skinned before hand.

            Mahi Mahi in French is coryphene, in Italian, lempuga, and in Spanish, llampuga.
