The Thick Lipped Grey Mullet (chelon labrosus)

is regarded widely as the hardest fighting fish swimming in British waters, fresh or salt. This fish can reach > 4.5 kilos (10 lbs) in weight, although anything over 1.5 kilos (4 lbs) is a good fish.  They are often viewed as difficult to catch given their normal diet is diatoms, plankton and algae
