Abstract

Soles (fam. Soleidae) are fish that are spread throughout the Adriatic, especially in its northern part. Except in the Adriatic they are widespread in the Mediterranean and throughout much of the eastern Atlantic. They are benthic organisms that inhabit sandy and muddy soil. In adult form the bilateral symmetry is not present. Thanks to their anatomy they can be buried in the substrate. Depending on the species, they spawn in all seasons. They feed on small invertebrates. Since the family is important for commercial fishing and farming because it is used in the daily diet, in this study each species that appears in the Adriatic sea will be further analyzed. Also in this study are presented informations about the anatomy, distribution and how to catch certain species.
