Fall along the East Coast of the U.S. triggers a massive mullet migration. Hordes of mullet of all sizes make their way southward for the cold months. Along the way they endure constant bombardment from predators of all types.
Once in Florida waters, the mullet get pummeled by tarpon, sharks, jack crevalle, ribbonfish, bluefish, birds and fishermen.
But I believe that since the banning of gill nets in inshore waters, it seems like the fish populations are getting thicker and thicker. This is a good sign for the entire food chain. Check out this video of the barrage of attacks on these mullet schools.
