  • Hippoglossus hippoglossus is a flatfish of the family Pleuronectidae. It is demersal fish living on or near sand, gravel or clay bottoms at depths of between 50 and 2,000m. It is among the largest teleost (bony) fish in the world, and is an endangered species due to a slow rate of growth and previous overfishing. In addition, as it reaches considerably big size at sexual maturity the handling is labor-intensive and broodstock maintenance is costly[1][2].
