Southern Flounder

The southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma), a commercially important species throughout coastal Alabama, is the flounder featured on menus at many local restaurants. Freshwater anglers catch southern flounders, some weighing up to 3 pounds, as far inland as Coffeeville Lock and Dam in the Tombigbee River and Claiborne Lock and Dam in the Alabama River.
