Platichthys flesus History
has been assessed as Least Concern. This species has a broad geographic range in which it is reported as common. Despite some signficant threats, harvesting and chemical pollution, these are not thought to pose a signficant threat to the global population at this time. However it is recommended that systematic monitoring is undertaken to determine stock status across the entire range.
