Description

The target fish of the PU ("Personal Use") dipnet fishery is the sockeye salmon, but permit holders are allowed to keep 10 of these flounders which occasionally get caught. I have yet to see somebody actually keep one. My cousin's husband caught this one, and despite my protestations, threw it back.

Description from Wikipedia

A flatfish is a member of the order (Pleuronectiformes) of ray-finned demersal fishes, also called the Heterosomata, sometimes classified as a suborder of Perciformes. In many species, both eyes lie on one side of the head, one or the other migrating through and around the head during development. Some species face their left sides upward, some face their right sides upward, and others face either side upward.

No range data available.
