Others spawn upstream, and the young are swept downstream for a short time before traveling back upriver. They are both caught and farmed. Flathead mullets commonly reach a length of 14 inches 35 centimeters from the tip of the snout to the end of the body but may reach 47 inches centimeters from the tip of the snout to the end of the tail.

Fat covers a large portion of the eyes. Flathead mullets have several rows of teeth on the edges of the lips. The body is olive green on the back and silvery on the sides and belly, and there are about seven dark stripes along the sides. The pelvic finanal fin, and lower lobe of the tail fin are yellowish in some fish. The pelvic fins are the rear pair, corresponding to the rear legs of four-footed animals.

Flathead mullets live all over the world in warm water. Flathead mullets live in inshore marine waters, estuaries, lagoons, and rivers, usually in shallow water, rarely moving deeper than feet m.

Adults may move far upriver. Larvae and young flathead mullets feed on plankton. Larvae LAR-vee are animals in an early stage and must change form before becoming adults.

Adults feed on invertebrates and algae AL-jeeplantlike growths that live in water and have no true roots, stems, or leaves. These fish may gulp and filter sediment, browse over submerged surfaces, or feed at the surface. Adult flathead mullets form schools and sometimes jump. Adults move offshore in unorganized groups to spawn, usually at night, before returning to near-shore waters with a low salt content or freshwater.

The young remain in sheltered bays, lagoons, and estuaries until they are old enough to reproduce. Flathead mullets and people: Flathead mullets are important food fish in many parts of the world.

Flathead mullets are not threatened or endangered. San DiegoCA: Gilbert, Carter Rowell, and James D. L-type rotifers should be given to the larvae from day 3 3.

Preference for Artemia nauplii increased from day 3 and was positive from day 13 Artemia nauplii should be added from day 9 4. Formulated food can be added after the fish are 6.

Recent larval feeding protocols can be summarized as following: Artemia nauplii are given for the first time at day 12—17 and until day 35 with a density ranging between 0.

Live food production guidelines are available in Annex A. Rotifers should be enriched in essential fatty acids in order to meet the flathead grey mullet nutritional requirements.

Rotifers are often fed on microalgae N. Commercially available enrichment media can also be used for enriching rotifers and artemia. According to Shcherbina et al.

Species of prey organism that have not been previously enriched cannot provide an optimal diet, and a combination of several species is desirable. Phytoplankton There is a significant improvement in both larval survival and growth when larvae are reared in the presence of background phytoplankton Tamaru et al. This improvement is probably due to the positive effects of phytoplankton on both environmental and nutritional factors providing vitamins and free amino acids to the rearing medium and improving the nutritional value of live prey for essential amino acids and fatty acids.

Moreover, Harel et al. Weaning Artificial feed can be provided from day 20—25 and weaning is complete around day 35 Gautier and Hussenot, ; Tamaru et al. There is no formulated diet developed for flathead grey mullet juveniles but other fish feeds, ground into small particles were successfully used Lee and Kelley, Juvenile feeding While shifting from a strictly carnivorous regime into a more omnivorous one, mullet fry naturally start feeding on benthic diatoms even on the sides of the tanks and nursery tanks are usually located outdoor Tamaru et al.

Mullet can then be fed with formulated feeds or plant origin feedstuff with relatively high protein contents such as rice bran or wheat flour Gautier and Hussenot, Better growth rate and survival were obtained in floating cages in fertilized ponds when feeding the fish twice daily instead of once Essa, The rate of digestion is slower at lower salinities than at higher salinities, and food intake is higher at the lower salinities Perera and De Silva, Moreover, the time required to reach satiation by the fry decreases with the growth from — min.
