Pompano & Permit
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.
