Author's notes

This was a large school of Mullet entering Burrill Lake on the outgoing tide, continued for a couple of hours, so number was great and ID not sure on. Sea Mullet or Bullnose Mullet?

I lean towards Mugil cephalus, but the photo isn't detailed enough to be sure. And anyway, the system won't let me confirm this Mullet family ID, even tho I added the family to the taxonomy....
