Pacific Mahimahi

Coryphaena hippurus

Also Known As

Mahi mahi, Dolphinfish, Dorado

U.S. wild-caught mahimahi is a smart seafood choice because it is sustainably managed and responsibly harvested under U.S. regulations.





U.S. wild-caught from Hawaii, California, U.S. Pacific Island territories, and on the high seas.


Mahimahi has a sweet, mild flavor. For a milder flavor, trim away the darker portions of the meat.


Mahimahi is lean and fairly firm with large, moist flakes.


The raw flesh is pinkish to grayish-white, although along the lateral line the flesh is dark. When cooked, the meat is off-white.
