Province Icons2 05 Halibut Maritime Provinces Newfoundland Labrad


Few fish represent our maritime heritage better than the halibut. Wild-caught and farmed throughout the waters of the Maritime provinces, Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, this flatfish is not just a staple but a testament to our nation's rich fishing traditions.

With its distinct diamond shape and grey-green hues, halibut is unique in appearance—and taste. Its meat is lean, mildly sweet, and beautifully flaky, making it a favourite choice for many dishes. In fact, many Canadians would argue that a plate of crispy fish and chips reaches perfection only when it's made with halibut.
