A comperative histological and histochemical study of the stomach from three species of Pleuronectid
, the Atlantic halibut, Hippoglossus hippoglossus, the yellowtail flounder, Pleuronectes ferruginea, and the winter flounder, Pleuronectes americanus.
The winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus) is a pleuronectid
flatfish that inhabits northwest and mid-Atlantic waters from Nova Scotia southward to Maryland (Pereira et al., 1999).
The diet of Oregon seals consisted heavily of pleuronectid
fish, which occurred in 92.84% of scats or stomachs analyzed with identifiable remains.

Family: Pleuronectidae: Distribution of Pleuronectid
eggs in the study period (January-2011 to December-2012) along Muthupettai coastal waters is given below (Figure 39).
Sand sole, Psettichthys melanostictus, is a common nearshore pleuronectid
flatfish in the northeast Pacific Ocean.
Within Chesapeake Bay, the most important species by weight, though not by value, are fish: the menhaden (Brevoortia tyrannus), the pleuronectid
(Paralichthys dentatus), the sea trout (Cynoscion regalis), and the bluefish (Pomatomus saltator), among others.
The addition of Atheresthes evermanni to the California marine ichthyofauna brings the number of pleuronectid
flatfishes known from the state to 21 (Miller and Lea 1972; Lea and others 1989; Orr and Matarese 2000).
Furthermore, Amezcua & Nash (2001) emphasize the importance of depth and temperature gradient, and type of sediment, as important factors to explain the structure and abundance of pleuronectid
Previous studies on wild population of the Australian Pleuronectid
Rhombosolea tapirina Gunther (green back flounder) have shown that there is multiple group synchronous ovarian development (Barnett and Pankhurst, 1999) and the capacity for multiple spawning.
First records of sinistrality in Microstomus pacificus (Lockington) and Glyptocephalus zachirus Lockington, Pleuronectid
fishes of western North America, with meristic data.
However, the general body morphology as an adult (i.e., 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).
