The next big thing: SEAFDEC renews push for pompano farming
MetadataShow full item record
A delectable fish that needs no seasoning, no need for scaling, has few bones, fits perfectly on a pan, and whose mild and sweet flavor suits almost any recipe. It’s no wonder that the pompano is called by some to be the “world’s most edible fish.” This silvery fish, with a pearly white meat when cooked, is known as “apahan” or “dawis lawin” in the Philippines. Its market price is between P300 and P500 per kilogram, depending on size, which is usually between 250 to 500 grams. Pompano naturally inhabit coral reefs, but they also adapt well to being farmed in marine fish cages and brackishwater fishponds where they grow fast and readily take in formulated feeds.
