African Pompano

Latin Name:  Alectis ciliaris

General Size:  26" x 14"

Found in the family Carangidae this large pelagic predator can be found in small schools or solitary. African Pompano are sought after by fisherman trolling in Western Atlantic waters from Massachusetts to Brazil as well as the Eastern Atlantic and Eastern Pacific. One especially characteristic feature of the African Pompano is the extremely elongated dorsal streamers or filaments. As juveniles, these streamers can be more than four times the length of the body itself and most likely act to provide camouflage amongst predators. Adults can reach up to five feet in length and the streamers are highly reduced or absent by adulthood.
