Facts About Halibut
To many people halibut are simply a good food source, but they are actually very interesting animals. Halibut are flatfish – creatures that have flattened bodies and swim on their sides. They start their lives looking like other fish, but as they grow, they gradually change their body position in the water so that they are moving with their right side facing the water surface. In addition, the eye on their lower side (the left side of the fish) slowly shifts in position until it lies next to the other eye on the upper side of the animal.
Pacific halibut are the largest flatfish and can grow to be huge creatures. The biggest flatfish on record is a Pacific halibut that measured just over eight feet in length and weighed over five hundred pounds. The fish can also be long-lived and may survive for as long as fifty five years. (http://hubpages.com/hub/Halibut-Facts-Large-and-Strange-Saltwater-Fish)
One of the former presidents of Cuba expressed the opinion that anglers who used rods and reels in bottom fishing were sissies. He maintained that a man should be stout enough to hold, play, and land any average fish on a plain line and hook, and he used to prove the truth of the assertion by hooking, fighting, and landing fish that weighed in excess of 100 pounds in that manner.
