Yes, Bill. Here we've been farming grey mullets in ponds already for several decades in polyculture with carp and tilapia. Excellent fish. Recently was found to be rich in omega 3, in spite of growing in freshwater. Basically, it's an euryhaline family (Mugillidae). Mullets fingerlings (M.cephalus and Liza ramada) are also annually stocked in the Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), where mullets cannot spawn (they need seawater), but grow at the highest rate worldwide. What else you wish to know? Cheers, MB-Y
