Biggest flat fish Armstrong's of Stockbridge sees in 26 years

Not so long ago Armstrong’s of Stockbridge fishmongers was in the local news after taking a delivery of a huge tuna fish and they are in the news again after taking delivery of a flat fish weighing over 16 stone and measuring 6ft in length. 

This time it is a halibut and it is the biggest fish of its kind that Armstrong’s has seen in 26 years of running their business.

The fish was caught at Rockall, a small, remote and uninhabited British island more than 100 miles west of St Kilda in the North Atlantic Ocean.  The fish is estimated to feed just short of 1,000 people.
