Sand sole, Psettichthys melanostictus, is a common nearshore pleuronectid
flatfish in the northeast Pacific Ocean.
The eggs of several pleuronectid
species in the North Pacific are positively buoyant (Pearcy, 1962; Bailey et al.
small mouth with teeth only on blind side, sharp ridge between the eyes) is quite similar to that of pleuronectid
flatfishes of the genus Pleuronichthys, (Allen 1982).
The cluster dendrograms were dominated by flatfish species because of the high number of pleuronectid
species found along the Oregon coast, as well as the tendency of most of these species to have pelagic eggs.
The most numerous prey fish were gadids, Ammodytes, and bothid and pleuronectid
The three species used in this project included two gadids, Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) and haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus), and one pleuronectid
, American plaice (Hippoglossoides platessoides).
During the spring, flathead sole are the most abundant pleuronectid
larvae in western Gulf of Alaska (Rugen (3)).

The Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) is an Arctic-Boreal Pacific pleuronectid
flatfish ranging throughout the North Pacific from southern California to northern Japan, but is most abundant in the Gulf of Alaska.
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.
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.
