Halibut has always been a choice eating fish due to its delicious firm white meat, and is often the premier fish at gourmet restaurants.
Halibut is the largest member of the flounder family and can sometimes reach 40 years of age and weigh in excess of 500 pounds. These fish are found in the waters of the Northern Pacific Ocean. In the West, they are found from the Sea of Japan and north throughout the Bering Sea. In the eastern Pacific, this species ranges from the Gulf of Alaska southward toward Santa Barbara, California.
At Barb’s Place, we source our Halibut directly from BC’s West Coast fishermen who fish the waters from Alaska to California. We buy fresh whole fish and filet it in our kitchen into beautiful white and flakey quarter-pound servings.
