    Abstract

    Species diversification is considered as an important means to enhance the aquaculture production. Pompanos (Trachinotus carolinus and T. blochii) are globally recognized as promising candidate species for mariculture because of their attractive appearance, fast and uniform growth rate, adaptability to culture environment, acceptability to formulated feed, firm white and tasty meat with high market demand. The broodstock development and seed production techniques for both florida pompano (Trachinotus carolinus) and silver pompano (Trachinotus blochii) was well established globally by the 1980s. Subsequently, farming technology for both was standardized and perfected. Presently, the aquaculture of pompano is being successfully practised in many Asia – Pacific countries like Taiwan and Indonesia.
