Mahi mahi is also called dolphinfish or "dorado," but don't confuse it with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). Mahi mahi lives in all tropical and subtropical oceans around the world. Its Hawaiian name, referring to its swimming ability, means "extra strong." Mahi are able to reproduce at the age of 5 months, females can produce up to a million eggs each time they spawn, and they are fast growers. These factors keep their population stable and sustainable.
Their pinkish translucent flesh has a sweet, delicate flavor, moderately firm texture, and large, moist flakes. Seafood Watch rates mahi mahi a "Good Alternative.” Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
