Abstract

In the development of aquaculture, finfishes have been given prime importance, and among cultivable finfishes, mullets forrn one of the most important groups which can be cultured in different ecosystems such as coastal seawater, estuaries, lagoons, brackishwater bodies and even in freshwater. The grey mullet, Mugil cephalus is one of the fastest growing and highly delicious table fish which is extremely tolerant to wide ranges of salinity and temperature and which occupies the lowest position in the food chain. This species is widely distributed and very popular worldwide as a cultivable fish. Historically, the fishery of rrlullets was described in the records of the ancient Greeks and Romans.
