A menhaden, also known as mossbunker, bunker, and pogy, is any forage fish of the genera Brevoortia and Ethmidium, two genera of marine fish in the family Clupeidae. "Menhaden" derives from a Native American word for fertilizer. It is generally thought that Pilgrims were advised by Squanto to plant the fish with their corn crops. (via Freebase)
