Location of the Best Halibut
As you might expect from a fish of its size, Halibut are often found in the cooler parts of the world. They prefer those cold, clear waters over anything temperate you might find farther south. Alaska, California, Washington, and Canada are all great places to catch some of the larger halibut out there. Both Pacific and Atlantic varieties are large, but the pacific halibut is actually on record for being the world’s largest fish, which goes to a 515 pound, 8.6 foot long fish. In general, catching season runs from March to November, so if you want to get a fresh catch these are the best months to order.
