Historically (Norman 1934; Sakamoto 1984), the Pleuronectidae included five subfamilies (Pleuronectinae, Paralichthodinae, Rhombosoleinae, Samarinae and Poecilopsettinae). All of these subfamilies have been elevated to family status (Chapleau & Keast 1988; Chapleau 1993). In a phenetic study of 77 species of an expanded Systematic diversity of the Pleuronectiformes 19 Pleuronectidae, Sakamoto (1984) defined the family based on several plesiomorphic characters (Chapleau 1993). Using information from Sakamoto’s study for members of the subfamily Pleuronectinae, as well as new characters, Cooper & Chapleau (1998a) elevated this subfamily to family status and provided evidence corroborating its monophyly.

Japan) may be under more local control. Regrettably, and for a variety of reasons discussed in the three chapters, many of these management plans have not prevented stock declines. There are success stories, however, as in yellowtail flounder (Limanda ferruginea) and Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis), where a long history of research and management by the International Pacific Halibut Commission has resulted in one of the most successful fishery management programmes in the world. Successful management requires data and these are often lacking, particularly in the southern hemisphere and the tropics.

G. Paralichthyidae) are in doubt, for the most part, these groups represent well-diagnosed lineages. 4 Brief synopses of the suborders and families Two major lineages of flatfishes are recognised: the Psettoidei, comprising the family Psettodidae, and the Pleuronectoidei, containing all remaining flatfish groups. Detailed discussion of characters used to support hypotheses of relationships proposed in this phylogenetic framework is provided in Chapleau (1993), Cooper & Chapleau (1998a, b), Hoshino & Amaoka (1998), Chanet (1998), Evseenko (2000) and Hoshino (2001).
