Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival

A festival of seafood, folk culture, sports, and pageants, the Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival has been held since 1976 in Niceville, Florida, to celebrate the unappreciated mullet, the underdog of seafood. The festival serves up 10 tons of fried and smoked mullet, plus it features beauty pageants, entertainment on stage all weekend, and arts and crafts on display. Beyond the mullet, food booths offer Cajun specialties like crawfish pie, gumbo, and gator sausage; American Indian staples of fried bread and pasole; barbecued rabbit; and stingray on a stick.

I was hoping for business in the front and a party in the back...I guess it's on the bottom of the gulf water.

It's the boiled shrimp which gets you? Not the stingray on a stick?

I've got a clean bottom, can I be Queen of the Mullet Festival?

Nice food Enjoy the festival!!

MULLET FISH
The two most commercially harvested species of mullet fish in Florida are the striped mullet (Mugil cephalus) and white mullet (Mugil curema). The striped mullet is commonly called a black mullet, gray mullet or jumping mullet and the white mullet is called a silver mullet.

Mullet swim in large schools and are commonly seen jumping out of the water, hence the name jumping mullet. This makes it easy for fishermen to spot the fish even in the dark. Mullet feed on aquatic plants and algae found floating, attached to the bottom or mixed in with surface sediments. The mullet is considered a vegetarian and is the only fish that has a gizzard, much like a chicken, that is used to grind up and digest plant material. Commercial harvesters use a cast, beach or haul seine net to catch mullet.

Tis an interesting festival but isn't it sad that this region of our country will soon be gone because of Global Warming, denied by those very rich and powerful people that will lose a very small portion of their horribly high profits, if restrictions are placed upon their desire to continue to rape our once beautiful world.
