The Mahi Mahi Migration

Mahi Mahi, otherwise known as Coryphaena Hippurus, is a common dolphinfish. It is a surface-dwelling ray-finned fish found in off-shore temperate, tropical, and subtropical waters worldwide. This fish is a major source of food for people all around the world.

In the Atlantic Ocean, the Mahi Mahi make seasonal migrations based on currents and many other factors. They can travel thousands of miles in less than a year and can be found in various regions throughout the Atlantic. Recaptures have shown that dolphin continuously move northward along the U.S. Atlantic coast, riding the ocean currents, and disappearing for short periods before showing up in tropical regions.
