A dolphin and Mahi Mahi are two entirely different species. Mahi Mahi is a DOLPHIN FISH (which is where the confusion came in, it is not an actual dolphin). But, too many people mistakenly thought they were really eating dolphin, so the name has been changed to Mahi Mahi. Sort of like they are changing the name of prunes to "dried plums" since prunes have a bad rap!!
I love Mahi Mahi!!
