SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Coryphaena hippurus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Common dolphinfish, Mahi-mahi

The stock structure of the species is not truly known at a global scale. Díaz-Jaimes et al. (2010) studied the inter-oceanic divergence of the Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Mediterranean populations but the genetic differentiation is not conclusive. Here, the separation of the Eastern Pacific and the Western Central Pacific stocks is based in the genetic heterogeneity found in the Pacific Ocean by Rocha-Olivares et al (2006).
