Mahi Mystery

How well I remember the first time I saw the neon glow of a dolphin hanging below a large patch of sargassum weed somewhere off the Palm Beach coast. Yes, we called them dolphin back in the 1960s, though we had no illusion that this fish had any relationship to a marine mammal. Sometime later, regulators changed the name to dolphinfish, which was fine. Today it is most often referred to as dolphin, dorado or mahi (which is short for mahi-mahi, the Hawaiian name for dolphinfish).
