Turbot

Turbot are large, flat bottom-dwelling, nonmigratory fish that live in the murky depths of European coastlines. They can grow up to be 40 inches long and weigh as much as 55 pounds, but they average around 25 kilograms. These fish have eyes on their left side, gills on both sides of their body above the pectoral fins, and white flesh.

Turbot is scaleless fish that have prominent bony knobs or tubercles on their head and body; they vary in color with the environment in which they live but tend to be light brown with darker markings. The eyes of turbot are always on its left side, except for a few species. This is because turbot are flatfish and their eyes have evolved to be on the side of their body that's down, which they normally use for camouflage and feeding.

Turbot (Psetta maxima) is a large-bodied flatfish found throughout Europe’s coastal waters. It spends its adult life mostly on sandy-gravel sea beds close to the coast. It is a nonmigratory fish, although it has been known to make large migratory journeys in exceptional circumstances.Turbot is very long-lived with individuals reaching over 20 years of age—one even reached 45 years old! Size at maturity varies around 80 cm total length and the maximum recorded age is over 100 years.

They are highly prized as table fish and were once abundant in U.K. waters, but overfishing has led to their disappearance from most of our coastline and they now have very little commercial importance here. Of more than 50 recorded species, only six occur in British seas—four on the south coast, one in the north-east Atlantic, and another very rare species in Northern Ireland coastal waters. Turbot is now rarer on the U.K. coast but is still caught in Northern Ireland where they are commercially targeted by trawlers fishing close inshore over soft sediments around shellfish beds.

The production of European flatfish in 1984 was 18,323 tonnes. Farmed turbot accounted for about 10 percent of this total and flatfish culture, in general, is not a major aquaculture activity in Europe. An average yield from the capture fishery was 567 kg/ha off the west coast of France and 245 kg/ha off the west coast of Ireland.
