PCBs are pretty bad stuff. They never go away, are concentrated in the body over time and have been linked to cancer. They are in the sediment of Escambia Bay thanks to Monsanto. They routinely discharged them for many years into the river where they settled out in the bay. So far they have not found any contaminated fish anywhere but Escambia Bay. I don't think mullet stay in one area though.

I haven't ever, nor will I ever eat a fish from up there. Too many clean places to catch and eat fish.

so my question is: What about flounder, crabs, etc. They all migrate heavily throughout the year, and all of them go to the river mouths at some point. Are they ok to eat as well?

Just asking a question. I still plan to eat my fair share.

Also, why isn't Monsanto paying restitution to the state of florida and having to clean every single square foot of contaminated bay soil?????

reelhappy (10/1/2009)you silly guy mullet is bait! not for human consumption!
That's what I thought until I got hitched to my "Holley" girl....Her family went and ruined me (weight wise). NowI get upset if I can't get down to the "fish fry" in time to sample the backbones and if lucky the roe....BBob
We need to get reelhappy to one our family fish fry's and he would change his mind on mullet.Ha!Ha! I was the same way until I got hitched to a Holley boy. Didn't eat any salt water fish now can't get enough of mullet, oysters, grouper, etc,.

anybody that knows me, knows i eat mullet! it's not my favorite but it's not bad. we just cook 50 pounds of the stuff at our rodeo sept. 20 it all went fast. one of my friends even got me to try the center cut ( back bones) they are good. i was just messing with you guys about the bait thing. but we do use them as bait. just like shrimp and crabs and spanish mack's and a lot other prefectlly good eating fish. but i don't eat anything from the upper bay just because of the increase in mecury levels and pcb's. i get enought of that from the fish in the gulf! i know i eat way more than the charts tell me what is a safe level but hey it taste so good! fish on! eat what you like to.

I wish I would have been there when you cooked the 50lbs. I've only got to eat mullet 1 time this summer so far. Made the hubby drive to Ft.Walton to a friends dock to catch me some and they where good.

drlile (10/1/2009)I am impressed how they have trained the mullet of Escambia Bay to swim in circles and never cross into Pensacola Bayor East Bay. Is there an invisible fence that I am unaware of? We're not talking oysters here. :doh
[quote]unlimited amounts of mullet can be eaten from the following specific locations within the Pensacola Bay system: East Bay, Pensacola Bay and Santa Rosa Sound.

I understand this to mean eat away from these bodies of water, am I wrong?

i might be helping out at a fund raiser for a women who had half her leg removed! they are trying to get everything together right now. but the idea was to have a fish fry ( mullet ) and charge $5.00 per head min. donation. it will be later this month. i will post it up when the details are done. also we have a big fish fry coming up on the 17th oct. at the oval office. it's not mullet but it will be awesome! everybody is welcome. see post under furom get togethers. theres nothing better than fryed fish and friends!!!!!!
