- The mahi-mahi is an ocean fish known for its wide, somewhat-cute face. It can reach over six feet long. It is known by many different names including "dolphinfish," even though it has no relation to dolphins. They live only in warm, tropical waters...which perhaps explains the relaxed, happy look on their faces.
Once donated, the mahi-mahi can be found in the north-east room of the fish exhibit, in the large central tank with the porthole windows. It will often swim near the glass wall, and sometimes will try to pierce the Anchovy school, scattering them for a moment - it shares this behavior with many of the large fish also in this tank.
Mahi-mahi, also referred to as the common dolphinfish is a surface-dwelling ray-finned fish found in off-shore temperate, tropical, and subtropical waters worldwide. It is one of two members of the family Coryphaenidae, alongside the pompano dolphinfish. These fish are most commonly found in the waters around the Gulf of Mexico, Costa Rica, and Hawaii.
