Bubbles the Flounder

Flounder have the distinction of being a member ‘flatfish’ species which are recognized by their flat body that can easily camouflage itself on the bottom of the ocean floor. Amazingly, flounder hatch with eyes on both sides of their head. But, as they grow bigger and flatter, one of their eyes actually moves to the ‘top’ side of the flounder to give it better sight for predators above! Some of the largest flounders in the world grow larger than 3 feet in length. In some parts of the world, flounder numbers are beginning to dwindle because of overfishing. So, next time you go for the seafood you might consider choosing a different fish!
