    Pacific Halibut can grow up to 2.7 meters in length and the website lists that they can also weigh up to 800 pounds although the largest halibut ever discovered was mentioned by paolomiguel as the first answer.  There may be a larger one lurking 600 fathoms deep that hasn’t been caught or seen yet.
