The process begins with the careful selection of breeding stock. Female pompano are induced to develop eggs and to spawn on demand. This controlled reproductive cycle is essential to steady-state farm production. Once spawned, eggs hatch in twenty-four hours. Newly hatched larvae quickly develop into juvenile fish. Pompano take almost a year to reach marketable size. The finished product is processed to consumer specification.

The most recent description of Pompano Status at MTI is described in the technical paper "Florida Pompano is an Alternative Species for Low Salinity Shrimp Pond Farming" , 2006. The first technical paper in a planned series addressing Aquaculture Economics was presented at Aquaculture 2007, "An Economic and Operation Model for the Growout of Florida Pompano in Sea Cages". An earlier paper by McMaster at the 1987 Caribbean Aquaculture and Trade Expo in Puerto Rico entitled "Pompano Mariculture: Past Success and Present Opportunities" is also available.
