I just went through this haha because myself and a friend are purchasing a Canadian license this year. 115cm still a great halibut. Here’s another chart to help picture what the size limit is.

Big halibut (pretty much anything over 100#) are breeding females.  Its hard to turn a big fish loose, but it's a good thing to do. 

I'm guilty as charged for killing big hens in the past.

Personally, I think fillets from 25-50# fish taste better than the big old girls (flakier and less rubbery).
