Halibut Season is here

I can never keep track as to when it starts and I was pleasantly surprised to see some stunningly fresh Halibut at Whole Foods.
God help me, I couldn't resist forking out $7.00/100gr :( for a couple of gorgeous portions but only this one time.

I've got beautiful baby sorrell and chives coming up in my balcony garden crying out to be added to a beurre blanc that will kill!

So, any sightings around town of fresh and more reasonably priced Halibut? I know it's early days and they can pretty well charge what they want but there can only be cheaper than WF.

    T&T will have some on sale-they always do-but it may be last year's product.

      Don't you guys have a couple of Finest at Sea locations? I certainly frequent FAS in Victoria. I think they usually have fresh halibut (in season) for around $4 per 100 grams or better. Except for certain cuts...they usually charge more for the cheeks.
