PompanoPompano or silver pompano was one of the most popular species cultured in Taiwan. Wild Silver Pompano lives in the coral reef areas of less than 15 ft. water depth and is found in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. This fish is a good aqua cultural species due to its fast growing rate, high market price, but most importantly, excellent flavor and texture.
Pompano whole usually ranges from 2 to 3 pounds. Fillets typically are served skin on and can be broiled or sauted. Meat is white, has a moderate fat content and has a mild sweet flavor, which is why it is so popular.
