Pair of elevation illustrations of the Wahoo seen from the side and front

The Wahoo (Acanthocybium solandri) is found in tropical and subtropical open oceans. They belong to the family Scombridae and highly valued by sport fishermen and commercial fishermen. They are large and aggressive predators that would show different color patterns to confuse prey.

The Wahoo is a solitary fish but could also be found in small schools or only congregated to breed. They are known to be broadcast spawners, fast swimmers, and attracted to floating debris. They are identified by their elongated jaws, slender bodies covered in less visible scales, silver bellies, and top in blue coloring. Their body color fades during death.

Wahoos have a total length between 40”-72” (102-183 cm), body height of 6.5”-12” (16.5-30.5 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 15-40 lb (7-18 kg). The typical lifespan of the Wahoo is 5-9 years.
