M any flatfishes have been shown to possess only a single isoenzyme of LDH in the majority of their tissues. Studies on flatfishes from the English Channel, using starch gel electrophoresis, have shown that this is not true for all species. In particular the soles appear to have at least two catalytically distinct isoenzymes in heart and muscle which show tissue-specific patterns. Individual variations in the zymogram patterns were found for several species, in particular the four species in the Soleidae. Several of these variants are probably the result of m ultiple alleles at an LDH locus. LDH polymorphism may be of use in stock identification studies on Lepidorhombus whiff-iagonis, Pegusa lascaris and possibly Buglossidium luteum and Microchirus variegatus.
