(Pompano) “ … as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin.”
Chefs and seafood lovers have long celebrated the unforgettable taste of ocean-fresh pompano. Mark Twain praised the taste of pompano in his 1883 work Life On the Mississippi, calling it “as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin.”
“As a food fish there is none better than the pompano … “
David Starr Jordan and Barton W. Edleman weighed in on Pompano. Starr was founding president of Stanford University and the most respected ichthyologist in the U.S. Evermann was director of the California Academy of Sciences. “As a food fish there is none better than the pompano, either in the fresh waters or the seas. This is practically the unanimous verdict of epicures and all others who have had the pleasure of eating the pompano, fresh from the water. The flesh is firm and rich, and possesses a delicacy of flavor peculiarly pleasing to the palate.”

Dale Sims, founder and chief fishmonger, at CleanFish has nothing but praise for fresh-never frozen Dyer Aqua ocean farm-raised pompano.
Ocean farm raised fresh-never-frozen Pompano available year-round
For years, restaurants and seafood retailers have had to rely on inconsistent seasonal harvests of pompano. As a result, few restaurants could print pompano on their menu, and their patrons’ only hope was to see it featured—if they were lucky—as the “fresh catch of the day.” Until now, that is. Dyer Aqua now offers farm-raised, ocean-fresh pompano year-round.
