The Wahoo, also known as Mulato in Aruba, is a very common fish that can be caught all year round while deep sea fishing in Aruba.
It can be found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas.
The Wahoo is best known to sports fishermen for its speed and high-quality flesh which makes it a prized game fish. It can swim up to 60 mph (97 km/h). They are some of the fastest fish in the sea. The flesh of the wahoo is white to grey, delicate to dense, and highly regarded by many gourmets.
In Aruba, the local demand for wahoo is met by fishing charters in Aruba, such as Natasha Sport Fishing Charters, who supply the restaurants with their catch.
