Scientific name: Hippoglossus stenolepis
Descriptions: Starting life as a round fish, these Jurassic looking creatures of the deep soon evolve into a flatfish. The eyes migrate around their head at around 6 months old where they then start living life as a flatfish. Being a mottled brown on top with a white underbelly these fish are perfectly adapted to living life on the seabed as this camouflage aids them in their life as an ambush predator.
Average Size: Halibut vary in size, the smaller specimens are only a couple of pounds wher as the larger monsters reach over 500lbs. The average size of the fish you are likely to catch is around 50lbs.
Where to catch: The Halibut is a flatfish that lives in the cold waters of the North Sea, inhabiting the waters around Greenland, Iceland and Norway. The odd specimen has also been found in the waters around the UK by commercial and recreational anglers. These fish love a flat bottom to lay in wait for their prey to pass over their heads where they will then rise up and engulf the food in one mouthful. Destinations like Mefjord, Havoysund, Saltstraumen and the Lofoten Islands are all very good places to target Halibut.
