Abstract
    A computerized databank of IEF protein patterns for use in identifying flatfish species (in total 17 species, including 15 commercial ones) is presented. The databank includes all species regulated by the Belgian Law (22 May 1996) on the use of official names for fishes and seafood products. It was found that interspecimen similarity of the IEF patterns, as processed by digitization, was always larger than interspecies similarity, which allows for unequivocal authentication of unknown samples, as long as the authentic pattern is available in the databank. The databank was used to authenticate 17 commercial fish fillets.
