Habitat - Saltwater and estuarine, Most flounders are caught in bays and
Flounder (rarely: fluke) are flatfish that live
in ocean waters ie., Northern Atlantic and waters along the east coast of the
United States and Canada, and the Pacific Ocean, as well. The name "flounder"
refers to several geographically and taxonomically distinct species. In Europe,
the name flounder refers to Platichthys flesus, in the Western Atlantic there
are the summer flounder Paralichthys dentatus, southern flounder Paralichthys
lethostigma, and the winter flounder Pseudopleuronectes americanus, among other
species. In Japan, the Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus is common.
While flounders have both eyes situated on one side of the head, they are not
born this way. Their life involves metamorphosis. During metamorphosis, one eye
migrates to the other side of the body so that both eyes are situated on the
upward-facing side of its body. After metamorphosis, flounder lie on one side on
the ocean floor; either the left or right side might face upward depending on
the species. Flounder sizes typically vary from five to fifteen inches, though
they sometimes grow as large as three feet in length. Their breadth is about
one-half of their length. Flounder are ambush predators and their feeding ground
is the soft mud of the sea bottom, near bridge piles, docks, and other bottom
encumbrances; they are sometimes found on bass grounds as well. Their diet
consists mainly of fish spawn, crustaceans, polychaetes and small fish.
Flounders are flatfish that have become extremely popular in restaurants. They
generally have a delicate to medium flavour and their unusual appearance suits
them exceptionally well to presentation especially something a little out of the
Flounders are often served whole and can either be boned-out, or with the bones
left in to provide an attractive appearance.

US FDA - EU SEAFOOD PROCESSOR EXPORT
In the past the EU has accepted and used the FDA list of approved seafood
