Ocean sunfish are native to the temperate and tropical waters of every ocean in the world。 The sheer size and thick skin of an adult of the species deters many smaller predators, but younger fish are vulnerable to predation by bluefin tuna and mahi mahi. Adults are consumed by sea lions, orca, and sharks.
