Flounder At Harbor View

Last week at Camp Harbor View a flounder was caught by a camper. The fish was huge as you can see from the picture of it in the bucket. The camper was really surprised that he caught the fish and so was everyone else. He was very excited to have caught a fish for the first time. A flounder is a one sided fish that swims on the bottom of the sea. When a flounder is fully grown both of its eyes are on one side of its head. The eye migrates to the other side of the body in a process called metamorphosis. This process allows the flounder to be on one side of its body so that it can camouflage itself on the bottom of the ocean.
