The recent suggestion by a group of fisheries biologists to create species-specific 'flatfish fact sheets', to accelerate flatfish research is recalled. The suggested contents of these sheets are shown to overlap with the entries of FishBase, a global database on fish developed at the International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), which is therefore proposed as the tool of choice for interested flatfish researchers. The modalities for possible cooperations are briefly presented.
