Arrowtooth Flounder (Atheresthes stomias)


The Arrowtooth Flounder or Atheresthes stomias is just one of the around 100 different species of Flounder in the world.  This particular species is from the Pleuronectidae family which makes it a right eyed Flounder.   These flatfish are considered to be a great tasting fish, but must be served EXTREMELY fresh to fully appreciate their flavor.

Arrowtooth Flounder are found in the Pacific Ocean in places like the coast of California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska. These saltwater fish will spawn in the wintertime normally between December and February. They will often feed on Pollock and other small fish. Arrowtooth Flounder can easily weigh over 10lbs and have that classic, run over by a steamroller look.
