About Southern Flounder

The southern flounder is very compressed laterally with prominent eyes and a large mouth containing sharp canine teeth. The eyed left side is generally light to dark brown with diffuse small spots and blotches, while the right side is white and eyeless. They do not have distinct ocelli (spots ringed with distinct lighter areas) that other flounder have. They have fewer gill rakers than summer flounder. Adult size: 10 to 30 inches.
