Halibut is a member of the Flatfish family and is found in both the Atlantic and Pacific waters.

The largest of all flat fish, halibut have an average weight of about 25 - 30 lb, but can grow to be as much as 900 lbs.

Halibut has firm white meat and a mild flavor and is an excellent source of the important antioxidant mineral selenium . This seafood delight also contains brain-boosting B vitamins (niacin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12) as well as provide a good source of the important minerals magnesium and potassium.

Be sure to choose only Pacific Halibut, as opposed to Atlantic Halibut which is an Ocean's Alive Worst Seafood Choice.
