A high-fat flatfish, perfect for smoking
Greenland halibut lives at the bottom of the ocean in depths of 250-2000 metres, where the temperature is ice-cold. Several product forms are available, primarily headed, gutted and tail-off. The fillets are mainly produced as skinless and boneless.
It is caught in the waters around Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and New Foundland. The season goes mainly from April to September depending, however, on where in the North Atlantic it is harvested. In Greenland even winter fishing takes place.
