Each year from roughly late march to July fish travel up the Australian East Coast often not far from the shore.These travelling schools of fish are easy pickings for professional fishermen who locate the travelling fish using spotters on high headlands and other methods like planes.Once the fish are in tracking mode the fishermen set their Seine nets by creating a barrier and then dragging the net around the school and then hauling the surrounding net to shore,the fish being forced into the cod end of the net.Once on the beach the cod endis opened and the millions of Mullet packed into boxes and sent to market.Almost no part of the mullet is left unused with the roe used for caviar and the rest for a variety of uses.
