that care the mullet are full of mud

I ,H4Mup pond mullet men forgot to
stock their ponds with Seed mullet. In
other cases the retaining walls, having
been neglected, have fallen down,
therebv ruining the prospects of a crop
of mullet for the current season.
Had to relate, mullet, which since
immemorial hnve been one of the sta
ple foods of Hawaii and of which up
to this year there has always been a
plentiful supply, have almost complete
