Stocking of flounder in salmonid freshwater culture are suggested as a possible way of reducing loadings of surplus food to surrounding environment Flounder of different sizes were transferred from an estuary to Atlantic salmon trays and net pens in fresh water. The flounder fed on surplus salmon dry food. Transfer mortality, growth potential and feeding habits in duoculture with salmon are discussed.
