Pleuronectidae

a family of TELEOST fish, such as the flounder, that start life with normal symmetry but undergo a development as a result of which the eyes come to be on one side, the head is twisted and the fish, in a resting position, lies on the bottom, on its other side.

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.
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 flatfishes.
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.
