Mullets live all over the world.

Young mullets eat plankton, which are microscopic plants and animals drifting in water. Larger mullets eat microscopic plants and animals from submerged surfaces and eat small invertebrates, or animals without backbones.

Mullets are important food fishes. They are both caught and farmed.

Mullets are not threatened or endangered.
