  1. Little known fact! The sneaky seal GIF and video makes me said because the fish they are holding is Mahi Mahi and when I worked as a fish farmer I farmed Mahi Mahi for about 5 years. My job was to keep the fish healthy so I don’t like seeing dead fish.

    These are both male Mahi Mahi. Mahi Mahi is an example of a fish that the male and female looks different. The males have a big blunt shaped head while the female is rounded. The green color indicates stress i.e. someone killed them. In the water they are normally blue unless stressed or mating.
