RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Artisanal mullet fishing broke the "2019 record in Florianópolis" this weekend. The event took place at Lagoinha, a beach in the north of the island capital of Santa Catarina, in the south of Brazil. Approximately 8,000 mullets were caught in a single haul.
According to the fishermen, this is a record for this year's season, which until now had been very feeble. In other years, however, up to 50,000 mullets have been caught in a single net, which would have been the highest ever recorded, recalls fisherman Alionísio Manoel de Souto . . .
