MENHADEN TRIVIA & FACTS

A Native Americans name for menhaden was ‘munnawhatteaug', which means, ‘fertilizer', and menhaden are probably the fish that the Native Americans told the Pilgrims to plant along with their corn.

The Atlantic Menhaden, also known as Alewife, Bunker, Bugmouth and FatBack, is a member of the herring family. Maximum size is about 15 inches. Many of these fish have a large crustacean parasite in their mouth, hence the name 'bugmouth.'
