    The feeding habits of the marbled flounder Pseudopleuronectes yokohamae were studied using 384 specimens (10.7- 52.3 cm in total length) collected from the West Sea, Korea between January and December 2021. P. yokohamae ate mainly polychaeta and gastropoda, incuding teleostei, caridea, euphausiacea, amphipoda and brachyura. The mean number of preys per stomach (mN/ST) showed a statistically significant difference, and the mean weight of prey per stomach (mW/ST) increased as the total length increased. P. yokohamae ate mainly teleostei in spring and winter. P. yokohamae ate mainly euphausiacea in summer and mainly polychaeta in autumn.
