"Mahi-Mahi is a beautiful fish with a rainbow of dazzling iridescent colors which fade after dying.  The back is electric green and blue with gold or silver sides and bellies.  The sides have a speckling of spots.

They are among the fastest swimmers in the sea, and their Spanish name is Dorado maverikos which means “golden maverick”.  The average commercial size is about 5 lbs, but mahi-mahi can reach up to 50 lbs."
