Otherwise known as Mahi-mahi, the original name causes many to mistake them for the porpoise or dolphin – think “Flipper”. This is not so as Mahi-mahi is a fish, not a mammal as is the porpoise. Mexican and Latin American dolphin are called “Dorado”. Mahi-mahi often gather in large schools attracted to floating objects such as logs and buoys where they find smaller fish to feed on. They are surface feeders and are found throughout the Pacific and tropical waters world wide. Hawaiian Mahi-mahi is regarded as some of the highest quality in the world with fish over 15 pounds in size being preferred. Their flesh is white, firm, sweeter than Ono, and delicious when sautéed, baked, broiled, or fried.

This is a great example of hand crafted, American-made artwork. We have found a skilled artist doing one of a kind pen and ink drawings. These drawings are drawn on oak wood – the camera can never pick up the true detail of these very interesting pieces. This drawing is titled “Shortspine Boarfish”. The item measures 11 1/4 inches X 12 inches. This Shortspine Boarfish drawing is artist signed by Russ Orme.
Boarfish, (family Caproidae), are any of six species of fishes (order Zeiformes) characterized by red coloration and a laterally compressed body that is as high as it is long. All six species live in deep marine waters, occurring in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. The two genera, Antigonia and Capros, are placed in different subfamilies. A typical species, A. capros, reaches a length of about 18 cm (7 inches).
Boarfishes typically have three anal spines that are completely separated from the soft rays of the anal fin. When viewed from the side, boarfishes appear almost rhomboid, or diamond-shaped, owing to the angular profiles of their backs.
Besides this Shortspine Boarfish drawing, we have several other fine pieces of nautical and fish artwork in this category. Simply scroll up or down the page to view the photos and descriptions.

This barn wood framed artwork “Rainbow Trout” is a nice fine display piece. It is oil on canvas, and measures 21 1/4 x 11 3/8 inches. The back is covered with black kraft paper and has a saw tooth hanger.
The rainbow trout is native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. Adult freshwater stream rainbow trout average between 1 and 5 lb, while lake forms may reach 20. Coloration varies widely based on subspecies, forms and habitat. Adult fish are distinguished by a broad reddish stripe along the lateral line, from gills to the tail, which is most vivid in breeding males. Wild-caught and hatchery-reared forms of this species have been transplanted and introduced for food or sport in at least 45 countries and every continent except Antarctica.
