Starry Flounder Fillets - 10 lbs

Starry Flounder Fillets - Platichthys stellatus

Starry flounder fish can be found all over the Pacific Ocean, from areas like Japan, Alaska, Korea and Mexico. This is a flatfish that can be easily identified by sight. It has a unique pattern on its back. The pattern is a mixture of dark background with light dots that look like stars. Hence the name Starry Flounder. This fish is found in shallower waters around 375m. It also has been known to go into fresh water. Some Fish have been found over 100km inland. It is very popular due to its nice flavor and is fished for and sought after where ever it is found. Starry Flounder Fillets is very versatile and will come out great no matter how you prepare it.


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 the fish 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 the flounder fish.  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 fish 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 Pacific 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.
