Southern Flounder are distributed from North Carolina to Texas, and support commercial and recreational fisheries throughout their range. We have focused on investiging biological questions needed for better stock assessment and improved management. Additionally, Southern Flounder have a variable life history throughout their range, and our work has also sought to better understand and describe how this species exhibits plasticity in its life history traits across space.
