Sea Mullet

Sea mullet are found in all coastal waters of WA but they are targeted by commercial fishermen from Shark Bay southwards using gill and haul nets.

 

Mullet is a fast growing herbivore that swim in large schools and can often be seen jumping out of the water. They can grow as big as 80cm but most caught are in the 30-50cm range.

 

We stock sea mullet from Mandurah and Bunbury which are sold as whole fish and boneless fillets.
