Sole


Profile image
Dover sole is a flatfish. Both of its eyes are located on one side of its head. They have a small mouth relative to their size. Their drab coloring helps them camouflage themselves on the ocean floor. In some areas, Dover sole are referred to as “slippery sole” because juvenile and adult Dover sole excrete mucous onto their skin/scales, making them incredibly slippery and hard to pick up or hold. Dover sole is an excellent source of low-fat protein, calcium, and other important nutrients.
