    Abstract

    Members of the family mugilidae commonly known as mullets are one of the commercially important teleosts found in the coastal waters of the World. They have a Worldwide distribution including tropical, subtropical and temperate seas. Apart from inhabiting coastal and offshore waters, many mullets inhabit part or whole of their lifetime in coastal lagoons, lakes and even rivers. Mullets are moderate to large sized fishes reaching a maximum size of 120 cms. SL, but commonly reaching 30 cms. These fishes have a sub-cylindrical body, head often broad and flat dorsally. They have two widely separated dorsal fins. The first dorsal has 4 spines and the second one is with an unbranched ray and 6 to 10 branched rays. The pelvic fins are sub-abdominal with one spine and five branched rays. The anal fin has 2-3 spines and 8-12 branched rays. Lateral line is absent. Adults have ctenoid scales. The mouth is of moderate size with small labial or missing teeth. Their gill arches are long and they have a muscular stomach with a long intestine.
