|Mahi Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus)
Watercolor and colored pencil
Mahi-mahi are found in tropical, subtropical and temperate surface waters worldwide and have many different names depending on where they are found. They are also known as dorado and dolphinfish, though they are not related to the marine mammals we call dolphins. In Hawaiian mahi-mahi means ‘strong fish’, an apt description for this large, beautiful and popular sport fish. The Spanish call it dorado maverikos or ‘golden maverick’ which may refer to its behavior in the sea, as well as its tendency to shift color and hue after it is pulled out of the water, when it will eventually fade to a pale yellow-grey.
