Dolphin in the Ocean 

Dolphin fish are apex predators, this means they feed high on the food chain while having only a few predators. These fish are abundant and wide ranging throughout the tropical and subtropical oceans. They support important commercial and recreational fisheries around the world. Dolphin fish are also a large component of the bycatch of the tuna purse-seine and longline fisheries in the Pacific. They are commonly found near natural and artificial floating objects, such as sea weed piles, and debris, a trait which facilitates their capture.
Larger males seem to prefer open ocean habitat while females and smaller males remain associated with Sargasso (in the Atlantic) and floating debris. It has been theorized that males are more active feeders than females and are substantially heavier, so a greater amount of food is required to sustain their metabolism, leading to more voracious feeding. The open ocean habitat provides larger prey for the larger male dolphin fish.
