Buy North Atlantic Halibut Fillets Online
Bring home meaty fillets of the largest flatfish in the flounder family, the North Atlantic Halibut. These Halibut fillets come from fish responsibly harvested throughout the deep and cold northern Atlantic waters stretching from Canada, Greenland, and Iceland across to the Barents Sea north of Europe. The largest Atlantic Halibut recorded was taken off Cape Ann, Massachusetts, weighing in at a whopping 615 pounds! They are a long-lived, late-maturing species that can live up to 50 years and can reach up to 15 feet in length. Full-grown female Halibut average from 100 to 150 pounds, while males tend to be slightly smaller.
Halibut’s firm texture makes it an ideal fish to prepare and cook with whether you’re going for a classic battered fish or spicing things up with blackened fish tacos. The flavor is rich yet mild enough that it’s the perfect choice for a healthy family meal option. Bake, roast, kebab, or grill, North Atlantic Halibut will become one of your new favorite staples at the dinner table.
In accordance with NOAA FishWatch guidance, Maine Lobster Now proudly serves sustainably and responsibly sourced seafood products to our customers. Our wild-caught halibut is sourced directly from local North Atlantic waters, including Maine up into Canada and all the way across the North Atlantic to the Barents Sea. North Atlantic halibut is cut into fillets daily for unmatched freshness.
What’s the Serving Size of North Atlantic Halibut Fillets?
Each order of North Atlantic Halibut is delivered in a 16 - 18 oz fillet that we recommend to serve 2 people. Halibut meat is translucent when raw and turns opaque and white when cooked. It is a firm fish that holds together well whether you pan roast, fry, or grill it. Serve with traditional seafood appetizers, like any of our seafood soups and chowders, or your favorite side dishes you like to pair with fish.
The Health Benefits of Halibut
Seafood is widely regarded by medical experts and dieticians to be healthy, providing nutritional benefits not found in other meat sources. While salmon is often widely publicized for its health benefits, in general, most fish species are also low in calories and fat, but high in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Alaskan Halibut has 16 grams of protein per every 3 oz. compared to only 80 calories and 1 gram of fat. Halibut is also a valuable source of vitamins B3, B6 and B12, which helps regulate cell function, as well as vitamin D.

Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Halibut
Storage: Keep frozen ≤ 0℉ (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain their quality for at least 6 to 12 months. Lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish). It is important to note seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.Thawing instructions: Thaw under refrigeration ≤ 38℉ (3℃). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging. For quick-thawing, place frozen fish in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until the contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture the package). Regardless of the chosen thawing technique, once the product is thawed, it should be cooked within 24 hours and stored at a temperature no higher than 38℉ (3℃).
