The speed, size, and predatory feeding habits of wahoo make them a prized sport fish in many parts of the world.
Mahi-mahi is a suitable alternative to wahoo.
Wahoo is a tropical species found in Australia from Rottnest Island in WA around the Northern territory and Queensland, south to Montague Island in NSW. Unlike the mackerels, wahoo is a solitary species, with groups of five or more fish rarely found in the one location.
Wahoo is caught by trollers as well as longline gear. Sport fishermen use light-tackle gear.
Wahoo is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical coastal waters and available year-round.
Wahoo has a slightly sweet flavor.
Meat is very firm, white, and flaky.
Wahoo is best broiled, grilled, sautéed, or smoked.
The first external evidence of deterioration in a whole wahoo is discoloration of the skin around the head and gill plates and a general softening of the flesh. In a dressed fish, discoloration of the flesh exposed around the collarbone would indicate a loss of quality. Poor quality fillets have opaque, milky flesh, or they may be cracked.
Wahoo is appropriate in the casual dining, fine dining, hotel, and resort/club segments of the market.
