NFC: RE: Fw: i.d. fish please

Thee are several kinds of mullet but if you're sure it's not, well, it could
be Menhaden (Brevoortia tyrannus).
Menhaden are silvery in color with a distinct black shoulder spot behind
their gill opening and a variable number of smaller spots on their sides.
Their bodies are moderately compressed, their caudal fin is deeply forked,
and their fins lack spines. Menhaden range from Nova Scotia, Canada to
central Florida.

A picture might help!

Cheers, Charles
