    When I first got it I assumed it was a mullet but it looks a bit different from others I’m familiar with. Thus my post here.

    mullets are extremely common here.

    Mullet is also the plural of mullet I believe, in the same manner as "sheep".....what kind of cretins do we have fishing here...... ;) :D

    It looks like it has large translucent teeth but i guess that is not the case.

    Could be a sardine. A little more belly and smaller eyes than an anchovy.

    looks like maybe a little ladyfish maybe, eyes are just a little to small to make me go all in on that though - upload_2021-3-25_17-7-3.jpeg

    Not a ladyfish, but this was my first thought as well.

    They are ambidextrous. They can go in both.
