Flounder is a great fillet with a tender flaky texture - when fresh there are few better fish to pan fry or saute.
Witch flounder are found throughout the North Atlantic from North America to Europe.
Grey sole is another name for witch flounder, one of the less common flounders caught off the east coast of the U.S. Witch flounder is overfished (depleted) and still experiencing overfishing but it is being managed under a rebuilding plan with a deadline of 2016. Flounders are usually harvested with trawl nets on sandy bottoms. Though trawl nets drag across the sea floor and can be destructive, sandy bottoms are very resilient and less impacted by fishing gear.
