blackback flounder


The common flounder with dark skin above and firm white flesh, fished in the Atlantic Ocean off the eastern seaboard of North America. In New England the name blackback flounder is given to these fish when they are under 1.35 kg (3 lbs). If they are heavier than that they are called lemon sole, which is completely different from what is called lemon sole in the United Kingdom.
