    Abstract

    Flatfishes are readily distinguished from all other fishes by their compressed body and head with both eyes on the same side, either on the right or left. They belong to the order Pleuronectiformes and are divided into eleven families Achiridae, Achiropsettidae, Bothidae, Citharidae, Cynoglossidae, Paralichthyidae, Pleuronectidae, Psettodidae, Samaridae, Scophthalmidae and Soleidae. The fishes belonging to the family Samaridae have eyes on the right side of head. They occur in all the oceans and about 20 species belonging to three genera are found worldwide.
