So, what is flat fish?

Flat fish are a type of fish with a distinctive and unique body shape that sets them apart from other fish. They have a flattened, asymmetrical body with both eyes on one side, which allows them to blend into the ocean floor and hide from predators. Flat fish are generally found in shallow waters, such as estuaries and bays, and can range in size from small to large. They are also prized for their delicate flesh, which is low in fat and high in protein, making them a popular ingredient in many seafood dishes. Some common types of flat fish include halibut, sole, flounder, and turbot.
