Pacific Halibut can be
found in most of the marine waters of the North Pacific near
mud, sand, or gravel banks. Females can release between ½ and
4 million eggs depending on the size of the fish. Pacific Halibut
undergo a transformation in which the left eye moves over to
the right side of the head. While there is pigment on the outside,
the underside of the body is white. They live to be 40 years
copper, mica and glass
34 inches long
The facts collected to describe
each fish were pulled from various sources over the internet by Sealight Gallery's
staff. Sealight wants to acknowledge that we did not write any of the material
in regard to the descriptions, but we found the information collected fascinating.
We hope that in reprinting it readers will be inspired by it to save and preserve
the ocean and all of her glory.
