Mullet: Sustainable Fish, Horrible Haircut

There are two types of mullet in Florida: One is a hair style made popular in the nineties, the other is a type of fish. We chose to focus on the latter (sorry, but it's super sustainable and really healthy) in our latest Perennial Plate episode. Some people love the fish, others hate it (for no good reason). But one thing's for sure, there's a ton of it. We went out with Captain Anthony Manalli in the waters off the coast of Anna Maria Island in Florida. He taught me to throw a net, and I convinced him to eat raw mullet and white roe (you'll have to watch the episode to see what that is). All in all, it was a good day of fishing.
