The hogchoker is a small flatfish found along the Atlantic coast of North America, ranging from Massachusetts and Florida to Panama. They prefer brackish water, and are abundant in many bays and estuaries north of the Carolinas . It is a member of the American sole family Achiridae. They are usually brown to dark brown in color, and lighter on their "blind side" . The overall body color is often broken by a series of spots and thin stripes, which can be lighter or darker than the main body color... more
