Thicklip grey mullet
Europe, inland waters
There is little known about the state and development of the mullet stock in the North Sea, but because there is little focused fishery on mullet there is probably no overfishingOverfishing:
There is so much fish caught that the size of the stock has diminished so far that it can no longer produce a maximum sustainable yield. The size of the fish populations is insufficient to reproduce in the long term. .
Fishery on mullet with a set gillnet does not harm the seabed.
There is currently no joint management for mullet in European waters. Because there is little focused fishery, this is not an urgent problem.
