Mahon (1999) called attention on the lack of catch reports for Coryphaena
hippurus originating from recreational fisheries in some countries, including Brazil, from 1970-1997.
The species were the following: bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus); albacore (Thunnus alalunga); longnose lancetfish (Alepisaurus ferox); blue shark (Prionace glauca); dolphinfish (Coryphaena
hippurus), also known as mahi mahi; skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamisY, yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares); striped marlin (Kajikia audax); sickle pomfret (Taractichthys steindachneri); snake mackerel (Gempylus serpens); and escolar (Lepidocybium flavobrunneum).

hippurus) of northeastern Brazil using multishape descriptors.

off the coast of northern Peru have been studied little and have been described only as fauna associated with prospections associated with the Peruvian anchoveta fishery in the northern Humboldt ecosystem (between 4-16[degrees]S and 0-148 km from shore) (IMARPE (4)) and as a component of the diet of dolphin-fish (Coryphaena
hippurus) (Solano et al., 2015).
Considering all species subject to exploitation by the sport fishing fleet in this region, striped marlin represents 21.7%, Pacific blue marlin (Makaira nigricans) 3.4%, sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus) 2.6%, dolphinfish (Coryphaena
hippurus) 46.4% and yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) 19% (Klett-Traulsen et al., 1996).
In Southern California, anglers can take half-day or full-day trips targeting species such as yellowfin tuna, Thunnus albacares; albacore tuna, Thunnus alalunga; dolphinfish, Coryphaena
hippurus; and yellow tail, Seriola lalandi dorsalis.
The most abundant species were Eleutheronema tetradactylum (fourfinger threadfin), Otolithes ruber (tigertooth croaker), Pampus argenteus (silver pomfret), Scomberomorus commerson (narrow-barred Spanish mackerel), Scomberomorus guttatus (Indo-Pacific king mackerel), Pomadasys kaakan (javelin grunter), Epinephelus coioides (orange-spotted grouper), Thunnus tonggol (longtail tuna), Dussumieria (rainbow sardines), Coryphaena
hippurus (mahi-mahi), Acanthopagrus latus (yellowfin seabream) and Cynoglossus arel (largescale tonguesole) [2,3] (Figure 1).
