Why do halibut get so much larger up north?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are two kinds of halibut, California and Pacific.  Pacific Halibut are larger than California because they are different species. The smaller species, California Halibut, live between Magdalena Bay, Baja California, and the Quillayute River in British Columbia, and in the Gulf of California. 

    Pacific halibut live between Santa Rosa Island, California and the Bering Sea and the Sea of Japan.  Most that live in California live farther north.

    Both types of halibut have distinct features and eat different diets, based on size and availability of food, as well as impact of predators.
