Record #:
Various theories have attempted to explain color abnormalities in the southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma). Specimens of southern flounder were collected in Core Sound, North Carolina and examined. Observations contradict previous theories and suggest ambicoloration and abnormalities may be the result of other developmental factors.
