Pompano Farms, LLC.
Marine Fish Farming and Consulting
Pompano Farms, LLC. is owned by Michael F. McMaster and Thomas C. Kloth. Our business was established in 1972 for the development of vertically integrated, totally controlled year-round production of Florida Pompano. Our first commercial Pompano farm was built in the Dominican Republic in 1973.
There is a reason why no one else, after all these years, has not been able to duplicate our accomplishments. The technology, experience and management are the difference.
Florida's Highest Valued Fish - The Process
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.
