Biggest long rough dab in Europe

Published by under Fish and fishing

On a survey in the Norwegian Sea Norwegian scientists got a big long rough dab (Hippoglossoides platessoides) in the trawl. The long rough dab is believed to reach a maximum length at 50 cm. in the eastern part of the Atlantic Ocean. The biggest and oldest species are females. The growth rate is slow and fish close to the maximum length are rare.
