Summary Mahi Mahi is a delicate and expensive fish, as it's capture is difficult and rare. In Rangiroa, in the Polynesian Archipelago, Guy Boisson has discovered an unsual and spectacular technique to capture Mahi Mahi ... Thanks to a special boat built for its needs, he is surfing the waves, racing the Mahi Mahi that he then harpoons . On good days, he catches more than 40 of them. Guy is considered as the best Mahi Mai hunter of the Archipelago. His fishing exploits have gone down in island history. Not only has he mastered the techniques of his ancestors, he's taken them one step further. He once caught forty-two Mahi-Mahi in one expedition. Fishing mahi mahi is a delicate operation that requires split-second timing, speed and precision. Mahi mahi are surfing fish, they cut in and out of the waves, speeding up and slowing down ... Guy chases them with a speedboat and harpoons them one by one. Thanks to his great talents, Guy has helped raise a small local economy. Tourists come from around the world to enjoy the island delicacies
