ABSTRACT
Halibut, a flatfish related to the flounder. The name is taken from the Middle English words haly, meaning �holy,� and butte, meaning �flatfish,� because halibut was traditionally eaten on holy days. The halibut is longer, thicker, and heavier than other flatfish. It is dark brown on the upper side, white beneath. The eyes are on the upper side. The male halibut rarely exceeds 40 pounds (18 kg). Some females reach a length of 9 feet (2.7 m) and weigh about 700 pounds (320 kg).
