Mahi-mahi is also referred to as dolphinfish and they are mostly found swimming near the surface of the water. As ray-finned fish, their fins consist of webs of skin supported by spines. Mahi-mahi dwell in tropical and temperate waters, and they are part of the same family as the pompano dolphinfish. Their amusingly unusual name comes from the Hawaiian word for “very strong”.
Here in the United States, the fish are referred to as mahi-mahi, but they tend to carry different names based on the language. For example, in other parts of the world mahi-mahi is known as maverikos, dorado, rakingo, lampuga, and many more. If the multiple names weren’t already confusing, there is another fun fact: mahi-mahi are not related to dolphins despite being called dolphinfish.
If you’re trying to figure out male and female mahi-mahi, all you need to do is check out their heads. Male fish are identified by their forehead that protrudes from their body while females have a rounded head and tend to be smaller than males. Collectively, the mahi-mahi is known for its brilliant display of colors, from gold on the sides to the colorful blue of the pectoral fins. The fish can live for about five years.
