Megrim

Description

Megrim (Lepidorhombus Whiffiagonis) Also known as Whiff, Megrim is more loved by the Spaniards than in the UK. It has an oval body similar to Lemon Sole with a sandy-brown dark side. Despite being a left-eye fish from the same family as Turbot and Brill, Megrim is not on the same par, though at its best can be better than Plaice.
