I don't disagree that fluke may eat baby flounder and just about anything it can catch. To say that flounder is a big part of their diet, I don't buy it.

The flounder issue is up and down the whole coast including Mass, NH and Maine. North of cape cod there is little if any fluke and in Maine you don't find any. With no fluke up here and a huge historical flounder fishery, the fluke theory doen't make sense. No fluke in quincy bay mass and that was a huge flounder fishery.

It isn't the fluke, stripers, commarands, great white sharks, or loch ness that is the cause of the decline. before modern fishing methods were developed, everything was in balence.
