In 1994, more than 30 yrs after their first successful rearing through metamorphosis, the number of juveniles of the Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) released to the sea exceeded that of the red sea bream (Pagrus major), the pioneer species in marine fish stock enhancement in Japan. Many features of the Japanese flounder make it a promising species for marine stock enhancement, but many problems must still be solved before further advances are possible. Of particular importance are the effects of temperature on growth and development, developmental endocrinology, differences between reared and wild juveniles in physiology and behavior, and the relationship between physiology and ecology.
