Silver or White Pomfret

Silver or White Pomfrets live in coastal waters off the Americas, Western Africa and the Indo-Pacific Region. Fish of this family are characterized by their flat body, forked tail fin and long pectoral fins.

Silver Pomfret are usually silver/white in color, with few small scales. They can grow up to 4-6 kg (8–13 lb). however, due to overfishing, specimens weighing less than 1 kg (2 lb) are more commonly seen.

This fish is prized in the Indo-Pacific Region for its taste. It is called "Paplet" in Mumbai and "Vawall" in parts of South India.
