Pompanos (/ˈpɒmpən/ POMP-ə-noh) are marine fishes in the genus Trachinotus in the family Carangidae (better known as “jacks”). Pompano may also refer to various other, similarly shaped members of the Carangidae, or the order Perciformes. Their appearance is deep-bodied, toothless, with a forked tail and narrow base. They are typically overall silvery in color, sometimes with dark or yellowish fins, and one or a few black markings on the side of their body. They are relatively large fish, up to about 1.2 m (3.9 ft) long, although most species reach no more than half or two-thirds of that size. They are found worldwide in warmer seas, sometimes also entering brackish waters.
