Flavor Profile: Mild Sweet Taste

Texture Profile: Lean, Firm, Flakey

 It’s born upright, but falls to one side, then the eye on the bottom migrates around to the top. They lie on the bottom, bury in and wait for shrimp and baitfish to come by then ambush. They feed mostly on shrimp, crabs and small baitfish, so their flavor is extremely mild and the texture is very light, almost to a fault. Flounder are not bottom feeders!

Harvest Location(s): Western Atlantic, European waters, Northwestern Pacific
Sustainability: Aquaponic Fisheries

Farmed or Wild-Caught: Wild
