Wahoo (Ono)

A cousin of mackerel, wahoo is found in warm oceans around the world. In the Pacific, they’re harvested as non-target catch in troll and longline fisheries targeting tunas based out of Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, and Saipan. Most of the wahoo in the U.S. market comes from Hawaii, where the fish is nicknamed “Ono,” the Hawaiian word for “delicious.” Wahoo grow fast, up to 8 feet and 158 pounds, and have a short life span, up to 9 years. Males are able to reproduce when they reach 2.8 feet in length; females sexually mature when they reach 3.3 feet.
