Fish Market Monday

Tradex Seafoods and Seafoodnews always release timely data on the state of commercial fishing markets every Monday.  Enjoy the videos.  I’ve included a image from the crew of the F/V Equinox who are fishing in the Bering Sea this season.


Robert Reierson discusses…
– P.Cod raw material prices drop 10 cents
Snow Crab prices propped up by poor fishing conditions
– IPHC reduces Halibut quota by 18%


Russian consumption of fish increased 5% last year, even though imports fell 11%. The reason is increased domestic usage of Russian fish. Nowhere is the impact on the international market clearer than on cod, where the huge increases in Barents Sea catches have not led to price declines, because more of this cod is being consumed in Russia.
