The Florida pompano is a marine fish commonly found in inshore waters along the coast of the Southeastern U.S. Its body has a silver coloration and distinctive shape, with its eye located close to the mouth. The species typically travels in small schools and makes seasonal movements influenced by temperature, while local movements are influenced by tides.
The Florida pompano supports an important commercial and recreational fishery in Florida. It is the highest priced marine food fish in the U.S. and is valued by sport fishermen because of its fighting ability.
