Also known as the Wahoo, Ono is commonly found in Hawaii.Not always readily available to fish, the season for Ono runs from summer to fall (May-October).  Found in the open ocean as well as banks and pinnacles, Ono tend to be solitary or occur in loose-knit groups of two or three fish, rather than in schools.  Their diet consists essentially of other fish and squid. Ono is related to tuna and mackerel and is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas.  Its speed and high-quality flesh make it a prize game fish.  The body is elongated and covered with small, scarcely visible scales; the back is an iridescent blue-green, while the sides are silvery, with a pattern of vertical blue bars.  The mouth is large, and both the upper and lower jaws have a somewhat sharper appearance than those of king or Spanish mackerel.  Growth can be rapid. Ono can swim up to 60 mph making them one of the fastest fish in the sea. Ono flesh is whiter, flakier, and has a more delicate texture than the meat of other fast-swimming, pelagic species. Although Ono may make oceanic migrations as far as those of tuna and marlin, it contains less of the strong-tasting "blood meat" muscle that the latter species use for long-distance swimming.  Ono is caught commercially in the process of trolling and with long-line fishery for tuna and dolphin.
