A large, flat, oceanic fish. It dwells on the sea floor, both its eyes on the top side.

Halibuts are a species of fish who can be found in temperate and arctic oceans. Over three times heavier than a dwarf, they provide a good amount of returns when butchered. As non-vermin fish, halibuts can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with the use of a drowning chamber. Infant halibuts are called halibut fry.

Some dwarves like halibuts for their fins.

Admired for their fins.
