Ono (Wahoo)

1
This close relative of the King Mackerel is known in Hawaii as the Ono. In Hawaiian, Ono means "sweet, very good to eat". The name Wahoo is believed to be derived from the name Oahu due to the historic abundance of these fish close to the island. This well-known Pacific fish is deliciously cooked in a variety of ways. Ono feed near the surface in 30 to 50 fathoms along coastal ledges and are occasionally caught in open deep water. The vast majority of Ono are caught in Hawaiian waters by trollers. The fillets of the Ono are white and firm. Ono is delicious saut'ed, baked, broiled or fried.
