Body elongated and covered with small, scarcely visible scales. Iridescent blue at the back and silvery sides with a pattern of vertical blue bars. The wahoo is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas. In most parts of its range, it is considered a highly prized catch. Although it is referred as a pelagic species is often available not too far from land. It reaches a good size and is a very hard fighter when shot. The flesh of the wahoo is white, delicate, and highly regarded by many gourmets; indeed the Hawaiian name for the fish, Ono, is also the Hawaiian word for delicious.
