One of the most colorful fish in the Adriatic ocean
Inquiry


The Mahi-mahi or dolphinfish is a less known inhabitant of the Adriatic sea, as it is usually associated with tropical places due to its diverse colors. On its body, you can find a mixture of gold, green and yellow, with some silver added on the belly.

The average lifespan of a dolphinfish is 5 years and in that time it can grow up to 1.5 meters in length and weigh more than 40kg.

Although the fish in the Adriatic sea are a bit smaller, they can still exceed the length of 1 meter and the weight of 30kg.

Their main prey is smaller fish gathered in shoals in the upper layers of water on the open sea.

The best time for catching the mahi-mahi is in the autumn months, from September to November, when they migrate closer to the shore.
