What's So Special About the Dolphin Fish?

The dolphin fish has been a legendary prize in Miami beach for decades. Known as the dolphin fish, mahi-mahi, or dorado, they are most commonly referred to as the mahi-mahi, a name derived from Polynesian, which means "strong." Don't be fooled - the mahi-mahi, or dolphin fish, look nothing like dolphins and are in no way related to dolphins. So, the next time someone says they're fishing for dolphins (commonly used as yet another nickname for this fish), you don't have to be alarmed - they're really on the hunt for some quality mahi-mahi. 

The dolphin fish are most commonly found in the pacific ocean in the central and north American regions. However, they can reside in tropical/subtropical regions across the world, much like where you can go Miami deep sea fishing. They are present all year, but the best time to score a catch is in the warm summer months. They typically live for five years and grow to an average of 15 pounds. 

The Florida Wildlife Commission states that for Miami Fishing, there is a size limit of 20 inches, but there is a ten fish per person or 60 per vessel, whichever amounts to the least amount of fish. Gear requirements are just a hook and line for spearing. 

The dolphinfish is a popular dish for fish lovers worldwide. They are one of the lower-risk alternatives for mercury exposure and are generally low fat, coming in at just 1%. Their flavor is often compared to sea bass. If you want to try something new, mahi-mahi is the way to go.
