Pomfrets are perciform fishes belonging to the family Bramidae.
Several species are important food sources for humans, especially Brama brama in the South Asia. The earlier form of the pomfret's name was pamflet, a word which probably ultimately comes from Portuguese pampo, referring to various fish such as the blue butterfish (Stromateus fiatola).
- Several species of butterfishes in the genus Pampus are also known as "pomfrets".
- Some species of pomfrets are also known as monchong, specifically in Hawaiian cuisine.
