Mahimahi – U.S. Hawaii, Pole and Troll
Mahimahi are fast-growing and short-lived, which makes them moderately resilient to fishing pressure. There have been no formal assessments of Mahimahi in the Pacific Ocean, however, so its abundance in this region is unknown.
Pole-and-line and troll fishing methods typically result in low levels of bycatch, but in the Hawaii fishery there are concerns about targeted catches of tuna species that are depleted or experiencing overfishing. Pole and troll fisheries cause little to no damage to the seafloor.
