1982) noted that the chorion of Atlantic halibut is characterized by a greater number of lamellae (18) than other flatfish species (69), and that the morphology, ultrastructure, and development resembles patterns found in other pelagic eggs. Such comparisons have not been made for Pacific halibut. The eggs of both halibuts are exceptionally large by marine teleost standards, with a mean diameter of fertilized eggs before first cleavage of about 3 mm. 92 mm (Lønning et al. 1982). 17 mm, for eggs taken from a live spawning female.

Pittman et al. Page 20 (1987), working with Atlantic halibut, noted that eyes were fully pigmented at around 180 degree-days, as was the jaw apparatus. On the basis of the time of full absorption of the yolk, those authors suggested that halibut larvae were fully adapted to exogenous feeding after about 250300 degree-days. McFarlane et al. 5 mm, 56 days post-hatch. The long pelagic phase of eggs and larvae for both halibuts provides a mechanism for long distance redistribution from the spawning grounds.

The metamorphosis to a typical adult shape occurs at lengths of 3444 mm. Pacific halibut are still in the water column after fin formation, after the eye has moved past the dorsal profile, and after pigmentation is nearly complete (Thompson and Van Cleve 1936). Haug and Sundby (1987) note that nursery areas are apparently well defined and are often shallow (2060 m) coastal areas with sandy bottoms. Examples of such nurseries for Atlantic halibut include the Faroe Islands (Tåning 1936), Faxa Bay on the west coast of Iceland (Sigurdsson 1956), and possibly in the vicinity of Sable Island Gully off Nova Scotia (Stobo et al.
