Ecology of Hippoglossus stenolepis
 
Main Ref. Hart, J.L., 1973
Remarks Found on various types of bottoms (Ref. 2850). Young are found near shore, moving out to deeper waters as they grow older (Ref. 6885). Older individuals typically move from deeper water along the edge of the continental shelf where they spend the winter, to shallow coastal water (27-274 m) for the summer (Ref. 28499). Feeds on fishes, cephalopods, crabs, clams, squids, and other invertebrates (Ref. 6885).
