    The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has initiated aquaculture research on pompano from 2008 and the first successful broodstock development, induced breeding and larval production was achieved in 2011. Following the successful seed production of silver pompano, demonstration of farming in brackishwater ponds was initiated by the CMFRI to popularize among the farmers about its suitability for aquaculture. The first farming demonstration from the hatchery produced seed was carried out in a coastal aquaculture pond at Anthervedi Village, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh. It has been proven that silver pompano can be cultured in the brackishwater shrimp culture ponds as an alternative species with high survival rate, appreciable FCR and meat quality. These fishes have attained an average weight of 450 grams in 240 days (8 months). Based on the experience gained on the brackishwater farming of silver pompano, the practices to be adopted for pompano farming are narrated.
