A comparative histological and histochemical study of the post-gastric alimentary canal from three species of pleuronectid
, the atlantic halibut, the yellowtail ounder and the winter ounder.
Coastal stocks of Pacific Harbor Seals largely consumed pleuronectid
or clupeiform fishes, while the diet of the inland stocks of seals also consisted largely of perciform, gadiform, salmoniform, and scorpaeniform fishes.

Morphological differences between two congeneric species of pleuronectid
flatfishes: Arrowtooth Flounder, Atheresthes stomias, and Kamchatka Flounder, A.
The changes in the distribution of pleuronectid
species between cold and warm regimes may be due in part to differences in the magnitudes of larval recruitment between these two periods and also to movements of juvenile and adult fish across different depths (Castro-Aguirre et al.
Frequencies of anomalies in a bothid (Paralichthys californicus), and a pleuronectid
(Hypsopsetta guttulata), flatfish.
The cluster dendrograms were dominated by flatfish species because of the high number of pleuronectid
species found along the Oregon coast, as well as the tendency of most of these species to have pelagic eggs.
The most numerous prey fish were gadids, Ammodytes, and bothid and pleuronectid
The three species used in this project included two gadids, Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) and haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus), and one pleuronectid
, American plaice (Hippoglossoides platessoides).
During the spring, flathead sole are the most abundant pleuronectid
larvae in western Gulf of Alaska (Rugen (3)).

The Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) is an Arctic-Boreal Pacific pleuronectid
flatfish ranging throughout the North Pacific from southern California to northern Japan, but is most abundant in the Gulf of Alaska.
