The pacific halibut is the largest of all the flatfish species. Its overall attributes are typical for flatfish, with both eyes on one side (the right side specifically in this case), a mottled brown/green skin color on the "eyed" side, and white skin color on the "blind" side. Like all flatfish, the halibut starts out with an eye on each side of its head in its early developmental stages. Then as the fish grows, the left eye migrates to the right side, the skin colors take on their final colors, and the halibut begins it's bottom-dwelling existence.
