This is the weight of dressed halibut (head on, gutted) that corresponds to the round weight of 108 Kg written in the licence condition and notice to fish harvesters. The conversion factor being 1.14 the following calculation applies:

108 kg/ 1.14 = 94.73 Kg.

So, the seasonal catch limit of 108 kg of round halibut corresponds to 94.73 kg of dressed halibut if landed gutted with head on. Almost 95 Kg.
