Alaska offers a bounty of flatfish, with North Pacific
Seafoods offering four of the most popular species. Whether they are called sole or flounder, all share similar characteristics of lean, white fillets with a delicate flavor and texture. The Arrowtooth flounder
is very abundant and characterized by a soft texture. Arrowtooth can grow to more than 15 pounds.  Prized for its sweet flavor and fine texture, rex sole is normally under 2 pounds. Rock sole is the second largest flatfish fishery in the United States. It is a meatier fillet that is popular in the domestic market.
