SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Paralichthys lethostigma

SPECIES NAME(s)

Southern flounder, Fluke

Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic stocks are considered to be distinct genetically (Blandon et al, 2001; Renshaw et al, 2012). Research is undergoing to identify possible different populations in the Atlantic coast (Midway, 2011).

Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
