Does a mahi mahi fish have scales?

User Avatar
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.

Is mahi mahi a bottom feder?

Mahi mahi is a type of tuna. Tuna are large, carnivorous fish. Bottom feeders are fish or other animals that eat organic debris and waste, so tune fish are not considered bottom feeders.

Can you eat mahi mahi when you are pregnant?

User Avatar
Not often, no. You can eat Mahi-Mahi but you should limit your intake to one serving per week at the most. Fish safe during pregnancy is: Farm raised Trout, Farm raised catfish, WILD pacific salmon (Not Atlantic or farm raised), summer flounder, croaker, Mid-Atlantic blue crab (Not gulf of Mexico crab), and haddock. Eat as much of those as you want but limit yourself on mahi-mahi. Go here- http://www.pregnancy-info.net/foods_to_avoid.HTML

Just for confusion's sake "dolphin" is both the name of a small toothed whale (mammal) and a species of fish also known as Mahimahi. The term is also applied to a post (bollard) on a pier which ships tie up to or which is sued as a bumper to prevent collisions.

Is mahi-mahi a dolphin?

User Avatar
Yes and no. A mahi-mahi is a dolphinfish. On the east coast they are called 'dolphin' or 'rakingo' on the west coast they are called 'dorado'. The confusion arises from calling porpoises, which are mammals not fish, by the name 'dolphin' - such as the bottle-nosed dolphin. If you see 'dolphin' on a menu, then it is certainly mahi-mahi or 'dolphin' the fish. The mammals are highly protected.

Mahi mahi is sometimes called dolphin fish, or in Spanish dorado. However, the mahi mahi is a fish, not a dolphin - don't worry, you're not eating Flipper. The word "mahi mahi" is Hawaiian.
