MARKET INFO – HIGHLIGHTS
A ) Alaskan Cod: Inventories are available prices moving upwards on all sizes. B Season to commence September.
B) Alaskan Pollock: Pollock IQF and S/P 2-4oz and loins are available.
C) Rockfish/Sole: Integra holding allocation call for availability. New quota April 01, 2017.
D) Halibut: Halibut fresh sales are going strong. Frozen is not achieving the high price it desires at this time. Still early to see where the Frozen market price will balance at. Pacific Halibut fisherman have landed 11.8 million out of the 25.6 million pound catch limit. Landings are similar to last year at this time.
Projecting frozen 2017 Halibut to hit freezers come early Fall. Residual 2016 Halibut available.
Twice Frozen Halibut: New supply projected for July and August. Russian Halibut quota is down causing price increase. All in all prices will be up from last year for 2xFrozen Halibut.
E) Salmon: The Alaskan Sockeye Salmon season is under way with the fresh programs. Industry eagerly awaiting to see if projections are accurate. 2017 Sockeye Salmon fishery is expecting less fish caught then last year. This will put pressure on demand and of course price point. Chums are expected to land similar to last year. Due too little to none in inventory price could be up as well as demand overseas. Coho is expected to be similar to last year which is concerning as inventories were tight. On a good note Pink Salmon is suppose have a great run !
F) California Squid: Boats are out ! Sizes are coming in small for now. Pricing will be projected by volumes in the next 2 to 3 months.
