The Dorado, or "mahi-mahi" or "dolphinfish" is a surface-dwelling fish found 15-100 miles off-shore in waters outside of San Diego.
By whatever name, it is one of the most colorful fish in the ocean. Their shimmering and iridescent skin give off green and blue hues unlike any fish you have ever seen.
The males (referred to as ‘Bull Dorado’ or ‘Bulls’) are easy to identify because they have a conspicuously prominent, almost flat – forehead, whereas the female’s forehead is subtly more round as it curves into their dorsal fin. Males are also typically larger than females, reaching up to approximately 80lbs.
