Mullet
Mullet is a small to moderate-sized fish living along the coast and in freshwater of most temperate and tropical regions. They were thought to be a favourite of the Romans. Some mullet have an earthy taste due to swimming in the bottom of the river in the mud. Mullet is a moist, oily fish with a strong flavour.

Note about amines: Fresh seafood has low amine levels, but when older than two days the amine content rises to moderate, and any fish that has been frozen has high levels.
