These fast-swimming coastal fishes are a challenge to catch and, as a result, are coveted
by Florida recreational anglers; the pompano has the added enticement of being a popular
dinner entree. The two species are remarkably similar in appearance but very different in
size as adults.
This brochures discusses pompano and permit and includes information on appearance,
range and habitat, life history, and current research efforts. Also included is a handy table to
help aid in telling these two species apart.
