ABOUT THE FISH
This fish is very prolific, growing very fast in its first year
of life. They reach maturity at 6 months of age and are able to reproduce when they reach this age. They live to be
about 5 years old and can reach a size of 90 pounds. Females can spawn 3 times a year and produce up to a million eggs each time. Dolphin will feed on
almost anything they can chase down and catch. They primarily feed in the daylight hours. Due to recent
advancements in larval rearing research, dolphin aquaculture presents a potentially lucrative and
abundant source of food for humans, and reduces the chance of commercial and sport over fishing in the wild.
Because of their rapid growth they are often raised in captivity
as a food source. In captivity they grow slower than in the wild. They consume such massive amounts of food
that aquaculture has not been as profitable compared to other species of fish. Dolphin is low in
saturated fat and is a good source of vitamin B12, phosphorus, and potassium and a very good source of
protein, niacin, vitamin B6, and selenium. For more on nutrition, see Mahi Nutrition Facts. . Globally, about 80 million pounds of Dolphin are consumed

Dolphin in the Ocean
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

Fisherman around the world value these golden gems. They are prized for the fantastic display
of leaps and jumps after being hooked. The Spanish name for these fish, Dorado, translates into English as Gold.
The light tackles enthusiast can find great satisfaction from battling even a small fish. Large fish (over 50
pounds) can match strengths with almost any angler. Battling a large Dolphin can sometimes take 2 hours to
land on lighter tackle. They are relatively easy to catch once located. Locating schools of these green and
gold athletes is as simple as looking for the 3 B' s. Birds, Boards, and Boats. Birds- find a flock of birds
feeding in warm deep blue ocean depths and you have probably found a school of them. Boards - anything
floating in the water such as a pallet or Bamboo log will lead you to a school of fish. These fish have an affinity for floating objects. Boats- other boats sitting and drifting may be
in a school of fish. Be kind and don't crowd the other boat but get close enough to get in on the action. More
