Depth of catch

The pacific halibut is the largest of all the flatfish species. It's overall attributes are typical for flatfish, with both eyes on one side (the right side specifically in this case), a mottled brown/green skin color on the "eyed" side, and white skin color on the "blind" side. Like all flatfish, the halibut starts out with an eye on each side of its head in it's early developmental stages. Then as the fish grows, the left eye migrates to the right side, the skin colors take on their final colors, and the halibut begins it's bottom-dwelling existence.

Range of shelf life
Three to 7 days, depending on the quality of handling the fish has received.

How to store
Whole fish should be buried in ice with the belly cavity full of ice, since this is where deterioration happens most quickly. Adding ice to the belly slows this enzymatic process.
