Mahimahi – U.S. Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, Longline
Mahimahi produce many eggs, grow quickly, and reach sexual maturity at a young age, making them resilient to fishing pressure. No formal population assessments have been completed in any region, so their current population sizes are not known.
Mahimahi are often caught with longlines. The U.S. longline fisheries have bycatch of sea turtles, marine mammals, and sharks, but management measures are in place to reduce bycatch of these vulnerable species.
