Author(s): Thet Htwe Aung

Abstract: Based on the morphological evidences, a total of 9 genera, including 15 species of flatfishes (Order-Pleuronectiformes) were identified in the present study and the samples were monthly collected from Mawlamyine, Kyaikkhami, Setse, Zee-Phyu-Thaung, Belugyun island, Paung and Thaton from July to December 2017. As a result, Heteromycteris oculus, Zebrais zebra, Brachirus orientalis, and Cynoglossus carpenteri were the first records for the fishery resources of Myanmar. Moreover, by catch composition, flatfishes were one of the abundant species with 8% of total catches in Mon State. Among them, Cynoglossidae was the most abundant fish during the study period.
