There are typically 5 to 14 ocellated (eye-like) spots on the body. Like most members of the left-eye flounders, they can change the color and pattern of their dark side to match the surrounding bottom, also capable of rapidly burrowing into muddy or sandy bottoms. The average summer flounder reaches sexual maturity at 2 years and weighs 1 to 3 pounds, typically 15 to 20 inches in length, though they may grow as large as 26 pounds and live up to 20 years with females making up the largest and oldest specimens. Adults are highly predatory and considered mostly piscivorous, often lying buried with only their head exposed to ambush prey. they are rapid swimmers over short distances and can become very aggressive, feeding actively at middepths, even chasing prey to the surface.
The summer flounder is a marine flatfish that is found in the Atlantic Ocean off the East coast of the United States and Canada. It is especially abundant in waters from North Carolina to Massachusetts also has a range in the western Atlantic from Nova Scotia to Florida. But this fish is found in an islet called lunod dawis in maco comval province which can be found only when low tide.
Summer flounder are called chameleons of the sea because of their ability to change color to match the bottom on which they are found.
