In the spring and summer seasons, called “Hanami flounders”, from the spawning season, they recover from spawning, and are full and tasty.
Meigata flounder is distributed slightly southerly than Macho flounder, is relatively strong against high water temperature in summer, and is often caught in July and August. Because it is small in flatfish, it is useful as an affordable side dish such as boiled and fried.
