Fish ID - from a fin?

Observed: 8th July 2013 By: EsklingEskling’s reputation in Fish

Maybe asking too much to identify a sea fish from its fin only! Several of these fish were swimming around in shallow water (2/3 feet deep) close to shore, at high tide. Not visible in the photo but the shadows in the water suggested they were about 30cm long. I'd guess the height of fin showing is 6-8cm.

Happens all the time

I get duplicates - especially when using a tablet pc. Thanks for ID, I was thinking maybe mullet but not confident enough to suggest it.
