Hello, Halibut!

The world’s largest species of flatfish, fresh Pacific Halibut is now available until early November and we’re ready for it!

Halibut season has officially started! The world’s largest species of flatfish, fresh Pacific Halibut is now available until early November and we’re ready for it!

 

Cool fact:

Pacific Halibut are born with eyes on either side of their head, but by the time they’re six months old, both of their eyes end up on top of their bodies. First swimming vertically when born and eventually swimming sideways, Pacific Halibut can grow up to 8 ft. and can weigh up to 500 lbs.

Did you know Pacific Halibuts can actually blend with the ocean floor? One side of this remarkable fish is dark brown, while its other side is off-white, helping disguise it on the sandy ocean floor.

The Pacific Halibut eats crabs, small fish, clams, bottom-dwelling invertebrates, and squids!  

 

King’s Seafood Company sources Pacific Halibut from sustainable fisheries with strict standards. This ensures the Halibut isn’t overfished and can even help increase the population.
