Golden Grey Mullet

<p>The body of the golden grey mullet is fusiform and somewhat<br>laterally compressed. It can grow to a maximum length of<br>approximately 45 cm.<br>The upper lip is thin. It has a single gold spot on the gill plate<br>and often a single smaller spot behind the eye. The pectoral<br>fins are long and pointed (with no black spot at the pectoral<br>fin base). The head is broad and flattened above the eyes. </p><p>The back is grey/blue. The flanks are silvery and the belly is </p><p>white.<br></p><p>Longitudinal lines are dark and more or less pronounced. </p><p>This golden grey mullet lives in coastal waters, above all in </p><p>rocky littoral areas, but is also found in estuaries and lagoons. </p><p>It can sometimes be difficult to distinguish the species </p><p>belonging to the genus Liza, because of their similarities. </p><p>The easiest way to distinguish or identify this species is the </p><p>gold spot on the gill plate. Of all mullet species, the golden </p><p>grey mullet has the highest tolerance for salt water.</p><p><br>The meat of this fish is highly prized in winter, when the </p><p>catching of mullet in the Bay of Portorož is a traditional event.</p><p>&#160;</p><p>Authors&#58; Vanja Bončina and Valter Žiža</p><p>&#160;</p><i><font size="1" face="ApexNew-BookItalic"><font size="1" face="ApexNew-BookItalic"><p>&#160;</p></i></font></font>
