Nowegian Halibut

Nordic Halibut

Fortune "Fishes" you a Happy Valentine's Day by providing you the best farm-raised Atlantic Halibut.  Atlantic Halibut has a unique history in Norwegian culture that goes back thousands of years. Images of Halibut have been found carved into rock walls in Norway (probably to bring good fortune to fishing expeditions). Images of Halibut are so numerous that it is clear it is the grandest of all fish - the only saltwater fish to be invoked and worshipped by Norwegian ancestors.  Nordic Seafarms has been farming Atlantic Halibut in Norway since 1995.  Every phase of production from breeding to adult is carefully managed.  Norwegian Atlantic Halibut has a meaty, white and moist flesh.
