Closely related to the Atlantic halibut, Greenland halibut are a diamond-shaped, right-eyed flatfish with a slight fork in their tail. Their colouration is fairly uniform and ranges from a yellowish to greyish-brown, with a paler underside. Greenland halibut can be distinguished from Atlantic halibut by their straight lateral line (compared with the Atlantic halibut’s arched lateral line). They grow to more than a metre in length and weigh more than 10 kilograms, and can live more than 20 years.
