The Halibut Pillow


The Halibut is the largest member of the flounder family (Pleuronectidae). It can grow to up to 300kg in weight and some 3,5 meters in length. It is a formidable predator and feeds primarily, though not exclusively on fish, crustaceans and moluscs. Halibut can be found in the Northern Atlantic from Canada to Scandinavia and in the Barents Sea. Their coloration varies from dark olive to near black back and a light or near white belly. It is a demersal fish meaning that during development both eyes of juvenile halibut migrate to the right side of their body. It is a prized catch for all anglers and highly regarded by chefs around the world for its delicate taste
