When halibut are born their eyes are on both sides of their head, but after about 6 months one eye will migrate to the other side, making it look more like the flounder.

Halibut are the largest of all flat fish and have been an important food source to Native Americans and Canadian First Nations for thousands of years. Try some of our sustainable halibut recipes below!
