Starry Flounder falls into the flatfish category due to its look and how it lives its adult life. Like all flatfish, the Starry Flounder hatches looking like any normal fish, but when it goes into adulthood the eyes shift to one side and the flounder will spend the rest of its life living on the sea floor with the side of its body that has the eyes facing up. Though there are many types of flatfish such as sole, flounder, and turbot, the names are not freely interchangeable. Each name refers to a very specific type of species. Though it is difficult to notice, there are differences between sole and flounder. For example the side on which their eyes are located, and the size and shape of the fish. As a matter of fact, sole and flounder are not even a part of the same family of species. With all of this sole and flounders will have similar meat structures for the most part, but they will each have unique flavors.
When people move to the United States from different parts of the world they often come with a love of flatfish. More often than not they will exclaim that the flatfish here is just not the same as it was back in the old country. That statement is often so much more true than they could imagine.
