Description

Turbot (Psetta Maximus) Like Halibut, Turbot is a highly prized species (and often regarded as the best of the flat fish) with great flavour and firm, white flesh. It has an almost round shaped body, studded with bony tubercles on its dark side. Colour varies from light to dark brown, spotted with green or black and a white blind side. Turbot ranges in size from 400g to 10kg.
