- ... Migratory pelagic fish species, such as the mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus), must balance numerous metabolic demands simultaneously in order to survive in a challenging oceanic environment. Energetic support for such demands comes from a variety of natural prey items in the wild and can come from manufactured pelletized feed in captivity. This study quantified postprandial metabolism, commonly ref ...

- ... Mahi‐mahi Coryphaena hippurus is a promising species for aquaculture development and has been used as a model species for oil toxicology and physiology studies. This species has one of the fastest growth rates of any marine teleost and a unique reproductive biology due to its high spawning frequency and reproductive energy allocation. These characteristics lend the species to being an excellent mo ...
