Location & Habitat: The African pompano is distributed throughout the tropical oceans and seas of the world in a temperature range of 65 to 80 °F (18 to 27 °C), although is more often found in coastal waters. The species has been recorded from both the east and west coasts of the USA, South America and Africa, throughout the Indian Ocean and along Asia and Australia, as well as many islands in the Pacific.
Biology: The African pompano is a schooling predatory fish which takes predominantly a variety of crustaceans, including decapods, carids and copepods, as well as cephalopods and small fish. They are preyed upon by larger fish, including mackerel and tunas, as well as sharks.
Physical Description: Like many of the Carangidae, the African pompano is a deep and laterally compressed fish, with the deepest point of the body located between the origin of the dorsal and anal fins and having the head and tail tapering either side.
Fish Molding Process
We have and continue to travel the world to make our one of a kind molds as they are a vital part in order to handcraft the most popular fish mounts on the market. Our patented molds are then used to create the various fish models from which we can reproduce the life-like fish trophy mounts.
We do not extend, shorten or modify an existing model to fulfill an order. Instead we use one of the over 10,000 models of various sizes and species available. And we can ofcourse customize the mount to fulfill your needs and we are confident that we can build your custom fish mount regardless of inch increment or fish species.
We build one fish at a time to match the length, girth, and all of the specific characteristics and details only YOUR FISH displays. [Complete Molding Process]
