Can anyone tell me what this fish is? The photo was taken in Glenarm Marina in Co Antrim and the fish stayed in the same place for quite a while.
I've been looking more closely at this photo and I have a horrible feeling that it's a fish with it's head stuck in a plastic container or bag of some sort. Unless there's a fish with a suspiciously straight mouth.
The behaviour wouldbeconsistentwith a Mullet and the photos look like a mullet as well (but not good enough for a positive identification).
I think it is a thick liped grey mullet, they often swim into harbors for food and protection.
