Reversed asymmetry in laboratory-reared summer flounder
Date of Original Version
Eggs from laboratory-spawned summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) were hatched, and larvae were reared through metamorphosis in captivity. The incidence of juveniles showing a reversed asymmetry under these conditions was high-4.4% of fish that completed metamorphosis—given that only two cases of reversal in this species have been reported previously. The importance of directionality of ocular asymmetry in flatfishes is addressed. © 1993 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
