Large Toothed Flounder

Large-tooth flounders are a family, Paralichthyidae, of flounders.

They lie on the sea bed on their right side; both eyes are on the left side of the head, while the Pleuronectidae are the opposite with their eyes on the right side.

They are found in temperate and tropical waters of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans.

During summer spawning flounder are found in shallow water on sandbanks and close to shore. In winter reside in deeper waters. Most flounder are taken at night. They lie on the bottom buried under the sand with only their eyes protruding. Bottom fishing from a drifting boat across the sand flats is productive. Trolling lures along the bottom can be successful.
