Fillets > Dorado

Dorado also known as 'Mahi-Mahi' is a surface-dwelling ray-finned fish found in off-shore temperate, tropical and subtropical waters worldwide.

Dorado thrive in the waters around the Hawaiian, Japanese and Indonesian archipelgos, in addition to the coasts of Central and South America, the Red Sea and Eastern Mediterranean.

When removed from the water, this species changes color and fades to a light yellow-gray upon death.

This species spawns very frequently and is one of the fastest-growing fish, but has a short life-span not exceeding 5 years of age.

Dorado are highly sought game fish due to both their beauty and fighting ability. Dorado are also caught as bycatch in other fisheries such as marlin, tuna, sharks and swordfish.

Dorado has lean flesh with a mild, sweet flavor profile, moderately firm texture and large, moist flakes. The skin is thick and should therefore be removed before cooking.

Dorado is sold in the following specifications:

  • Whole Round

  • Fillets

  • Portions
