Unknown sanddab species
flounder caught in the shipping channel off Indian River Inlet, 13 miles out.
A small Summer Flounder (~6 inches) netted in the pond.
Although it is damn near impossible to tell exactly what I saw I am fairly sure that it was a halibut. Almost two and half feet long, brown in color, with the shape of a flat fish I feel that it is safe to say it was a halibut. There was a huge school of bait fish near the flood gates and this fish along with terns, and comorants were fishing here.
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.
