Chef Scott Anderson of New Jersey took home third prize with his dish featuring New Jersey fluke. Fluke is another name for summer flounder. Several years of catch reductions have allowed mid-Atlantic summer flounder to rebound from decades of overfishing. In 2010, the population was already 89 percent rebuilt, and scientists are optimistic that the stock will be fully rebuilt by 2013.
