Flounder are bottom dwellers and like sandy and muddy bottoms. They can be found inshore but also in very deep water.
Flounder are good to eat but not as good as plaice or sole.
We recommend cooking them, like plaice on the bone under the grill. Spread a little butter on the and add a dash of lemon juice and some seasoning prior to cooking.
