Date updated: September 2013 Season: all year Socio-economic Importance: Seen as an important sport fish for recreational anglers especially for beginners. Ecological Importance: Flounder are known to have limited ranges for each population resulting in high dependence on sufficient quantity and quality of estuarine and mudflat habitats for them to inhabit. However in these habitats, larval and juvenile flounder are thought to be a key prey for other small fish and crustaceans such as brown shrimp.
