Mahi Mahi

Sydney Mahi

Mahi Mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, are vibrant and energetic pelagic fish found in tropical and subtropical waters worldwide.


These majestic creatures exhibit fascinating migration patterns, often traveling in large schools across vast ocean expanses. Their migration routes typically follow warm ocean currents, which means each year for a short period of time, they make their way past our waters off Sydney.

At Rising Tide Charters, we follow these patterns and build up a network of FAD (fish attractant devices) marks off Sydney to ensure our clients have the best possible chance of landing these magnificent creatures.


As Mahi Mahi mature, their growth rate is quite rapid, with juveniles reaching sexual maturity within their first year of life.

However, growth rates can vary depending on factors such as water temperature, food availability, and genetic factors. Generally, adult Mahi Mahi can attain lengths of up to 90cm to  120cm and weigh anywhere from 7 to 15 kilos, although larger specimens have been recorded.


Their distinctive dorsal fin extends along much of their body, giving them a striking appearance that adds to their allure among anglers and seafood enthusiasts alike.
