Nursery area characteristics of pleuronectids
in coastal Alaska, USA.
Reversal of sides in the blackfin flounder Glyptocephalus stelleri and variability of body pigmentation and shape in pleuronectid
The %FO indicated that the most common prey were pleuronectids
, Pacific hake (Merluccias productus), Pacific stag-horn sculpin (Leptocottus armatus), osmerids, and shiner surfperch (Cymatogaster aggregata).
The number of gill raker rows on arches is similar in the two pleuronectids
, with the European plaice and European flounder both having one row on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd arches and two rows on the 4th arch.
The scales of the European plaice of the eastern Baltic Sea have only few ctenii which disintegrate and fall into sediment, differing in that aspect from the scales of many Atlantic pleuronectids
, which produce a large number of such elements (T.
A comparative histological and histochemical study of the post gastric alimentary canal from three species of pleuronectids
, the Atlantic halibut, the yellowtail flounder and the winter flounder.
These include the pholid Apodichthys fucorum Jordan & Gilbert 1880 (USNM 26994) and the pleuronectids
Pleuronichthys decurrens Jordan & Gilbert 1881 (USNM 27115) and Ph, uronichthys verlicalis Jordan & Gilbert 1880 (USNM 27280).
The teleost assemblage at this site includes pleuronectids
and bothids (right- and left-eyed flatfishes), serranids (basses), atherinids (silversides), mugilids (mullets), gobiids (gobies), clupeids (herrings), and other nearshore forms (Clarke and Fitch 1979), but the vast majority of the otoliths are of sciaenids.
Much of the work to date on reproductive potential and stock assessments comes from investigations on gadoids, pleuronectids
, and other high-latitude species that typically have determinate fecundity patterns (Trippel, 1999; Murawski et al.
Some of the forms mentioned include sciaenids (drums and croakers), pleuronectids
and bothids (right- and left-eyed flatfishes), serranids (basses), atherinids (silversides), mugilids (mullets), gobiids (gobies), clupeids (herrings), and other nearshore forms.

Abundant otoliths of sciaenids (drums and croakers), pleuronectids
and bothids (right- and left-eyed flatfishes), serranids (basses), atherinids (silversides), mugilids (mullets), clupeids (herrings), and several other families that suggest a nearshore environment, are also present.
The poor hatching performance of northern rock sole at 12[degrees]C, along with the contrasting spatial and temporal distribution of northern and southern rock sole in the field, suggest temperature tolerance may be an important environmental variable reducing gene flow between these closely related pleuronectids
However, not all of them have commercial importance due to either their small size or low abundance; only the pleuronectids
and paralichthyids are commercially important (Diaz de Astarloa, 2002).
