One of the many ways to contribute to fisheries science is by studying the basic biology and distribution of resource species. Basic biological features of 200 tails of Indian halibut, Psettodes erumei, from Kota Kinabalu fish market were examined. Measurements of 7 body parts, counting of 5 fin rays, counting of vertebrae, and determination of the head-sided ratio were the major experiments. The ratio between the left and the right-sided halibut were not evenly divided. There were more female than male among young halibut. It was discovered that the left liver and the right liver were not in the same size for both sided fish. Halibuts observed were found to have 22, 23 and 24 vertebrae
