Keeled mullet (Liza carinata) in Egypt

This species is found more in the Red Sea system due to its high tolerance to high salinity. The fry of keeled mullet (Liza carinata) are collected from collecting stations in Ismaelia and Suez. Even though the growth rate of keeled mullet is not high especially when compared to key mullet species, there is a high market demand -and so premium prices- on keeled mullet especially when processed as salted fish.
