Wahoo, which means “sweet, very good to eat” in Hawaiian is also known as Ono. Built like a torpedo, they are fast swimmers. A Wahoo is a close relative to the King Mackerel. Wahoo feed near the surface in 30 to 50 fathoms along coastal ledges and are occasionally caught in open deep water. The vast majority of Ono are caught in Hawaiian waters by trollers.

This well-known Pacific fish is deliciously cooked in a variety of ways. The fillets of the Wahoo are white and firm with a flaky and delicate texture. It’s flavor is mild. Wahoo is delicious saut’ed, baked, broiled or fried. Hawaii Wahoo is an excellent source of healthy, extra lean protein. It is also low in saturated fat and low in sodium.
