The greenland halibut is a flatfish that lives at the bottom of the ocean. It is found at depths ranging from 600 to 1200 meters and can weigh up to 45kg. The flesh is firm and fatty, making it ideal for baking and poaching. Greenland halibut can only be found in waters colder than 4°C. It is typically caught along the Norwegian continental shelf as far north as Svalbard.
