Brigard Fact #99

In the regions surrounding the Sterling Marsh, many in the lower classes will spend misty summer mornings traipsing across the muddy riverbeds at low tide in search of a creature known as the Southern Mud-Shovel. Ranging in size from the length of a hand to the length of a forearm, the Southern Mud-Shovel is a fish with a wide, flat head that resembles its namesake. And like its namesake, this fish uses the strange, boney head to burrow into the mud when the water ebbs back to sea. The Southern Mud-Shovel is considered poor man’s food, but those who eat it nevertheless swear it tastes quite good.
