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.
