The most abundant flatfishes were Pacific Sanddab (Citharicthys sordidus), English Sole
(Parophrys vetulus), and Rex Sole (Glyptoceplwlus zachirus), with 2792, 1646, and 916 individuals of each species taken, respectively.
Depressed plasma estradiol levels and reduced ovarian estradiol production in vitro has been reported in English sole
(Pleuronectes Vetulus) from water ways polluted with PCBs and other aromatic compounds [18, 19].
The major constituents of the shelf cluster were English Sole
(Parophrys vetulus) and Petrale Sole.
Fish in other polluted waterways, including brown bullhead catfish and English sole
, also exhibit high levels of cancer.
In winter, following the development of the `dead zone' area, sandabs and English sole
go there to reproduce.
We used a suite of complementary biomarkers to signal contaminant-induced changes in the DNA structure and cellular physiology of the livers and gills of English sole
Sediment-dwelling English sole
living in and around Seattle's urban waterfront exhibit spawning anomalies that might compromise their reproductive success, a team of aquatic biologists finds.
In parts of Burrard Inlet, 80 percent of the English sole
have precancerous tumors and lesions, probably from fossil fuel hydrocarbons in the runoff."
All the small soles and flounders, including English sole
, petrale sole, rex sole, sanddabs, and Eastern fish such as gray sole and winter flounder (also called lemon sole).
Size-at-age data are not available for most species, but for English Sole
(Parophrys vetulus), the most common species, available aging data (senior author, unpubl.
The researchers compared DNA extracted from the gills of English sole
in the Duwamish River (which flows into the sound through a heavily industrialized area in south Seattle) to DNA taken from fish in the relatively clean Quartermaster Harbor.
Fecal samples collected in SFB indicate that harbor seals in this region feed on Pacific herring (Clupea pallasii), northern anchovy (Engraulis mordax), plainfin midshipman (Porichthys notatus), Pacific staghorn sculpin (Leptocottus armatus), white croaker (Genyonemus lineatus), yellowfin goby (Acanthogobius flavimanus), jacksmelt (Atherinopsis californiensis), and English sole
(Pleuronectes vetulus) (Torok, 1994).
