Freebase

  1. Witch

    The Witch flounder or Torbay sole is a right-eyed flatfish found in the North Atlantic. The species lives on soft bottoms between 45 and 1460 m and prefers temperatures of 2–6 °C. It eats mostly crustaceans, worms and brittlestars. It spawns from May to September. It grows to maturity in 3 or 4 years, and may live up to 14 years. The name Torbay sole appears to be a mainly culinary term, following the habit of renaming certain fish to broaden their appeal. It is also called grey flounder, witch flounder as well as other local names. The lefteye flounder Arnoglossus scapha is also known as witch.
