Striped Mullet (Mugil cephalus)

Description: 

The Striped Mullet is widespread along the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific coasts, as well as inland in large rivers, extending into Oklahoma and Kentucky. They are found in a variety of open-water habitats. Striped Mullets are detritivores, meaning they eat decaying organic material. They have two small widely spaced dorsal fins on their back and a small mouth.
