Major Fishing Areas

Atlantic Halibut is caught mainly off the southern and western coasts of Iceland. The largest fishing area is located on the southwestern coast.

Did you know...

Halibut travels all around the Atlantic, sometimes traveling upwards of 3000 km. Marine biologists have labelled Halibut in Iceland and then they have later been found all over the Atlantic Ocean. Atlantic Halibut is the largest flatfish species on earth, reaching 700 lbs. It’s a vicious predator known for eating seabirds amongst other things.

Did you know...

Common size of Atlantic Halibut is between 35 and 100 cm and 4 — 70 lbs. Even though the average size is pretty small, they can reach a length of 470 cm and weigh upwards of 700 lbs. Currently Atlantic Halibut is recovering which means that fishing of large individuals is prohibited. Bycatch of the large individuals occurs occasionally where the profits are donated to Icelandic marine research. Smaller individuals are allowed to be caught.
