Mullet, Hanauma Bay, Oahu, 5 feet

Mullets are common inhabitants of warm seas in nearshore waters that feed upon fine algae and surface scums by inhaling and filtering sediments through fine gill rakers.  Mullets often leap out of the water and will do so to escape nets.  They are popular food fishes and raised in aquaculture.  The family has a pair of widely separated dorsal fins and pectoral fins set high on the body.
