The Bull dolphin is the larger of the dolphin species. They seldom exceed 90 lbs. Their natural habitat is offshore and rarely do they come near shore. They are considered surface feeders exclusively around 0 - 70- ft. of water. Bull dolphin is commonly caught around grass rips (long stretches of sargassum weed) where it feeds on shrimp and smaller fish. Mahi-mahi are highly sought for sport fishing and commercial purposes. Sport fishermen look for mahi-mahi due to their beauty, size, food quality, and healthy population.
Mahi-mahi are popular in many restaurants. Mahi-mahi can be seen in the Caribbean Sea, along the entire west coast of North and South America, the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic coast of Florida, Southeast Asia, Hawaii and many other remote locations worldwide. This dolphin is known for its spectacular frenzied leaps when hooked.
The Bull Dolphin and Chicken dolphin look identical, the later is just smaller, commonly weighing only around 1 lbs. Until recently they were not even recognized as separate species. So if you catch one of these beauties and like to retain a lasting memory of this beautiful species, contact your charter Captain or Gray Taxidermy and have them create a fish mount to hang on your wall.
Just like all other species the Bull Dolphin fish mounts from Gray Taxidermy, the World's Largest Marine Taxidermy and producer of fish mounts, is made from a mold of a real fish,, making the Bull Dolphin fish mount, the most life like and finest reproduction available.
