Pacific Halibut - Hippoglossus stenolepis

Is a very large species of flat fish known as a righteye flounder and is found on the continental shelf of the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. Halibut are demersal, living on or near the bottom of the sea and are strong swimmers, able to eat a large variety of fishes, including cod, turbot, and pollock, and some invertebrates, such as octopus, crab and shrimp. Sometimes, halibut leave the ocean bottom to feed on pelagic fish, such as salmon, sand lance, and herring, and even seal remains have been found in their stomach.
