It has an elongated oval body and a  very arched small mouth, with several taste buds in front of the head.
Considered one of the best and finest species for its incomparable flavour, Moroccan sole is certainly a favourite among flatfish lovers.
The sole is a relatively low-fat flatfish. The common sole has an oval body, around which the dorsal and anal fins form a fringe. On one side, its skin is creamy white, and on the other, brown, and it is on this side of its head that its eyes are located. When it reaches maturity and becomes able to reproduce, it measures 32 to 35 cm. However, if it escapes capture, it can live long enough to reach 70 cm.
When it is active at night, its lower fin allows it to feel the movements of its prey on the sandy seafloor, while during the day, it burrows under the sand away from predators. The sole can live up to 25 years and reach sexual maturity between 2 and 5 years of age. It lives in the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Pacific.
