Halibut can be caught almost everywhere. It can be found in the harbour basin as well as out in the open sea. There are however some spots that are hotter than most. The best fishing is often found in depths between 8 to 50 metres. Plateaus and slopes around reefs and rocky peeks are always worth investigating.
The name of Halibut is derived from haly (holy) and butt (flat fish), for its popularity on Catholic holy days.
Halibut are often boiled, deep-fried or grilled while fresh. Smoking is more difficult with halibut meat than it is with salmon, due to its ultra-low fat content. Eaten fresh, the meat has a clean taste and requires little seasoning. Halibut is noted for its dense and firm texture.
The oldest, recorded age for a female halibut is 42 years, and the oldest male is 55 years. The current unofficial world - recorded sport caught halibut was caught on June 10, 1996 by Jack Tragis of Fairbanks, Alaska. The fish weighed was 459 pounds!
