Abstract
  • The rex sole has been an important flatfish in Oregon's trawl fishery since its beginning in the 1930's. This fish is easily recognized by its characteristic long pectoral (chest) fin on the eyed side of the body. Oregon landings of rex sole have gradually increased over the years. Initially rex sole were important primarily in the trawl fishery for mink food. However, trawl landings of rex sole for human food have steadily increased, with 3.4 million pounds being landed in the northeastern Pacific in 1974. Of that, Oregon's share was 1.3 million pounds, making rex sole Oregon's fourth most important commercial flatfish by weight. The largest share, 1.4 million pounds, was landed in California. Biological information from rex sole landed in Oregon was not gathered until the early 1960's. Information obtained on a sporadic basis included length, weight, sex, age and maturity. The data obtained from this sampling has supplied a substantial body of knowledge on this flatfish.
