Because the winter flounder is mainly a bottom dwelling fish, its Shrimpmain diet consists of things it can find on the sea floor.  Larval flounders will feed on the eggs and larva of many types of invertebrates.  The adults will feed on small mollusks, crustaceans, other small fish, plant matter, and someClams echinoderms.  However, this fish isn't the only predator on the block.
