|Conservation Status |
A Mahi-mahi (C. hippurus) is a large silvery fish. The word mahi-mahi means very strong in Hawaiian. It also means fish in Persian. It is a surface dwelling species, and it's found far offshore globally.
Also known widely as dorado, it is one of only two members of the Coryphaenidae family, the other being the pompano dolphinfish.
Mahi-mahi mostly stick around with their mates as they swim around. Surprisingly, Mahi-mahi are carnivorous fishes, that feed on Crabs, squid, and other fish that are smaller than it (like flying fish).
