Flounder

Flounder fish are extremely well camouflaged. They can be found all over the world in coastal waters, even near estuaries and mangroves; however, they prefer deep water with sand or mud bottoms. These fish belong to the same group as halibut, which is an unusual species of flatfish.

Just as the name suggests, these fish are thin, round, and lie flat on the surface of the water. Their flat bodies help them blend with the surrounding sand or mud, so they can easily sneak up on their prey. Their eyes - one on each side of their heads - are located at the top, which gives them a full range of vision even though they lie flat.

Flounder fish have laterally compressed bodies with dorsal and anal fins set at the rear of their flattened body structures. They lack pelvic fins, so these bottom-feeding fish cannot stand on their tails like other types of fish. This fish feeds on crustaceans, worms, and mollusks. Their teeth are in their throat, which allows them to swallow their food whole.

Flounder fish reproduce by spawning at sea over soft, sandy bottoms; however, they do not guard their eggs or young after spawning. After hatching, the larvae swim to the surface. Their larvae phase is thus very short-lived. Flounder fish spend their entire lives in the water column, never swimming to the bottom.

In summary, flounder fish have a laterally compressed body with an eye on each side of their heads and they lack pelvic fins so they cannot stand on their tails. They have a short larvae phase and spend their entire lives in the water column. They feed on crustaceans, worms, and mollusks.

Flounder fish are popular seafood dishes. They are low in fat, but because they have small bones, they are not considered a good fish for children, the elderly or people who have trouble chewing.
