Flounder, Witch – U.S.

Witch Flounder are a species of flatfish found on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. They grow slower and live longer than most other flounder species.

The abundance of Witch Flounder in the U.S. is low and they are currently fished at too high a level.

Bottom trawls are used to catch Witch Flounder, which damages the sea floor and catches other depleted or endangered species, like sea turtles.
