Wild Harbour Flat Fish
Wild Fresh Halibut
Halibut is the largest flatfish in the sea, growing up to 300kg and 4m in length. It’s highly regarded for its lean, meaty texture, huge flakes, and creamy white flesh that maintains flavour well. Its mild, sweet, and somewhat buttery flavour appeals to both chefs and home cooks. It’s also a healthy choice because it’s high in nutrients and low in fat.
