Abstract
  • The Pacific sanddab has been a minor contributor to trawl fisheries off the United States and Canada. Its market potential has never been fully utilized off Oregon, even though such potential was first recognized in 1914. In 1914 the Federal research vessel Albatross caught sanddabs with a beam trawl off Yaquina Light. It was predicted that sanddabs would be one of the most profitable species taken from these banks. Unfortunately the prediction was based on the high demand for this species in the San Francisco area. Until lately the sanddab in Oregon has been in low demand for human consumption and was used mainly as food for mink. Today, sanddabs maintain a small intermittent demand in Oregon and a small steady demand in British Columbia. In California this fish has long been regarded as a delicacy. Sanddabs enjoy local importance in the San Francisco region where they are popular and command a high price on the fresh market. A steady demand was cultivated by restaurant owners who feature it on their menus. This is due to the species year around availability as a reasonably assured supply of fresh fish. The accepted common name is Pacific sanddab. It has been called the "soft flounder" in California and the mottled sanddab and megrim in Canada.
