Oregon Pink Shrimp Volume Steady; Small Sizes Remain a Concern

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Seafood News] by Susan Chambers - May 24, 2017

Coldwater pink shrimp is finally being landed on the West Coast -- but not without controversy.

Oregon processors budged little on their initial price offerings to their vessels, fishermen said, but competition from some Washington boats eventually led to Oregon shrimpers accepting ex-vessel prices lower than they had hoped -- prices more in line with 2004 and 2006 prices, they said.

Oregon shrimper Nick Edwards said fishermen started the 2016 season...

SEAFOODNEWS. COM  by John Sackton  May 11, 2017

Slow lobster landings in both PEI and New Brunswick have hit a wave of demand, pushing up competition at the wharf, and prices to harvesters.

Mother’s day is a very traditional peak lobster sales day in Atlantic Canada, but this year, prices are so high that a lobster meal can cost over $100. 

Denis Breau, a fish shop owner in Moncton, said “for us it is terrible.  The world finds it too expensive.  There are a lot of people who are not on board and not buying.”

Currently, prices on the wharf in New Brunswick are around $7.50 CA for market..

ANALYSIS: Chilean Salmon Fillets Adjust Lower Again; Supply Looks to be Increasing 

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Urner Barry] Janice Schreiber - July 12, 2017

The Chilean salmon fillet market continued to trend lower yesterday. Supplies range fully adequate to ample in the spot market coupled with a seasonally lackluster demand period. Downward pricing pressure is being felt not only from other origins of farmed salmon (i.e. Canada and Europe) but also from the growing supply of wild salmon; especially sockeyes.

Additionally, market participants report that the volumes available out of Chile will continue ...

SEAFOODNEWS.COM by Michael Ramsingh - May 22, 2017

Ecuadorian farmed shrimp production in 2017 is at record high levels and the country’s sales to the Asian market account for more than half of its output. This continues to cut into the US and EU market share for Ecuadorian shrimp.

Surge in Atlantic Scallop Landings Sends Auction Prices and Wholesale Market into Tailspin

SEAFOODNEWS.COM by Michael Ramsingh - May 10, 2017

In March, Atlantic scallop landings were reported at 3.75 million pounds. This is more than double the monthly figure from last March and is 51 percent higher from the five-year monthly average for the fishery. 

Higher landings have caused prices at auction to fall faster and more sharply than usual...
