Mesocosm studies with larvae of halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus), sole (Solea solea) and turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) was carried out at Austevoll Aquaculture Station and at Flødevigen Biological Station in 1985. Very low survival was observed for halibut beyond first feeding in plastic bags. Sole larvae had very high survival in plastic bags, but fairly low in basin studies. Turbot had survival below 10% in plastic bag studies, no survival in one of the basin studies and about 10% in another basin study. Altogether 5-10 000 sole and turbot survived beyond metamorphosis.
