Norma's Brill 4-10

Brill

The Brill (Scopthalmus rhombus) can grow to 50cm.

IdentificationEdit

The body has a round outline, though not so round as the turbot. The upper surface is smooth and lacks tubercules.

BreedingEdit

Spawning occurs in spring - early summer in 10-20 m of water. The young metamorphose at 20-35 mm, and inhabit shallow waters for their first 1-2 years.

HabitatEdit

Brill may be found in depths of up to 50 m, on sandy or mixed substrates.

FoodEdit

The Brill feeds principally on small fishes and crustaceans.

RangeEdit

Found throughout UK waters.

Additional NotesEdit

The brill is fished commercially, but is not as highly-prized as the turbot.
