Asked in Mahi Mahi
Does a mahi mahi fish have scales?
That's a good question. Not all fish have scales. Swordfish, catfish, cod, mackerel, whiting, sturgeons, sharks and eels are just a few examples of fish without scales. The mahi-mahi fish does have scales, and is a clean fish, suitable for human consumption, according to the bible. Leviticus 11:9 states: "Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams, you may eat any that have fins and scales". Mahi-mahi meets the criteria of having both fins and scales.
