Hippoglossus hippoglossus-1.jpg
  • Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus L.) is an interesting species for aquaculture because of its high filet outcome, high market value, low annual catches, rapid growth, and low mortalities during the ongrowing stage.
  • Atlantic halibut belongs to fishes most difficult to reproduce in captivity as they usually do not spawn spontaneously and synchronously, hence collecting fertilizable eggs requires substantial expertise. In addition, as it reaches considerably big size at sexual maturity the handling is labor-intensive and broodstock maintenance is costly[1] [2].
