Halibut is a flatfish, genus Hippoglossus, from the family of the right-eye flounders (Pleuronectidae). Other flatfish are also calledhalibut. The name is derived from haly (holy) and butt (flat fish), for its popularity on Catholic holy days.Halibut are demersal fish which live in the North Pacific and the North Atlantic oceans. They are highly regarded food fish.

 

Health Benefits

Halibut are truly a nutrient-dense food. A very good source of high quality protein, halibut are rich in significant amounts of a variety of important nutrients including the minerals selenium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium; the B vitamins B12, niacin, and B6; and perhaps most important, the beneficial omega-3 essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are so named because they are essential for our health but cannot be made by the body; they must therefore be obtained from foods. Cold-water fish like halibut are a rich source of the omega-3 essential fats, a form of essential fatty acids in which the standard American diet is sorely deficient. (The other form of essential fatty acids, the omega-6s, are plentiful in a variety of commonly consumed oils such as corn and safflower oil. In fact, theomega-6s are so plentiful in the typical American diet that too much omega-6 is consumed in proportion to omega-3s-an imbalance that promotes inflammation, thus contributing to virtually every chronic disease in which inflammation is a key component.)
