Wahoo are usually found in solitude or in small, loosely connected groups. Wahoo puts up a fierce fight when hooked, making it a renowned game fish. They spend their lives in tropical waters eating mackerel, butterfish, round herring, and other small fish.
Wahoo is commonly eaten in Hawaii and islands of the South Pacific, where it is referred to as “ono,” meaning “good to eat”. The flesh is mild tasting with a large circular flake and low fat content. Wahoo is great grilled or broiled, especially when marinated to lock in succulence and moisture.
