    From the open sea they can make good eating.

    Depends where it is caught, where it's been living and what it's been eating!

    A mullet takes around ten years to reach breeding age and is still only around 3lbs by then.

    Larger fish (that might be 20 years old or more) have been sucking in their normal diet of mud and algae and sewage for much longer, and what they eat is only slowly absorbed by their incredibly long specialised intestines as it eventually passes through.

    Mullet tend to be localised, so fish caught in polluted waters (ie estuaries, docks, near sewage works etc) that have absorbed heavy metals and nasty chemicals from their bottom-feeding habits over the years are best avoided.

    Fish caught in the open sea are probably a better option, but not the older fish.

    There was a recent TV programme that showed Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall fishing round the British Isles.
    He slow smoked a grey mullet caught from clean water round the Channel islands and said it was as good a piece of fish as he had ever had. It was compared against smoked Bass and won hands down.
    UP THE DALE!!!

    Nice meaty fish, not too many bones either, but I wouldn't eat one from the docks, open sea mullet are better.
    I bought myself a whiteboard. It's remarkable!
