Grey mullet

Mediterranean marine species observed by Meet the Sea off the coast of Ibiza

Scientific name: Chelon labrosus

Grey mullet lives near the edges of free waters on rocky soils covered with algae, sometimes very close to the surface of the sea. They can measure up to 60 cm and feed on small invertebrates and algae.

Curiosities

They are of considerable fishery importance, and are often artificially reared on marine fish farms.
