Mahi-Mahi | Common Dolphinfish

Pair of elevation illustrations of the Mahi-Mahi seen from the side and front

The Mahi-Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus), also known as the common Dolphinfish, are found in most warm, tropical, and subtropical oceans of the earth. They belong to the family Coryphaenidae with males being larger than females.

Females have round heads while males have prominent protruding foreheads. They have a single long-based fin running along their compressed, slightly slender, long body from the head to the tail. They also have sharply concave caudal and anal fins. The Mahi-Mahi’s side and back show a mix of dazzling green or bright blue colors. The fish also changes color when out of the water and are highly prized as a commercial and sport fish.

Mahi-Mahis have a total length between 33”-55” (84-140 cm), body height of 6.5”-10.5” (16.5-26.7 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 15-40 lb (7-18 kg). The typical lifespan of the Mahi-Mahi is 4-5 years.
