Silver Mullet is also a common name for fantail mullet (Mugil gyrans),and redeye mullet (Mugil gaimardianus). Owing to their small size, less than 12 inches, Silver Mullet are primarily used for bait. Adult Silver and Striped Mullet consume the mud found on the bottom of estuarine waters, digesting the algae, plankton, and plant and animal detritus therein. These mullet are unique in having a muscular gizzard. They are an important part of the ecology in estuarial and coastal waters of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts of America.
