IN BRIEF - US Alaska Surimi Price Reduction

Monday, May 22, 2023

Forecast for season A 120 yen lower than previous season B, but still high

The price of this year's A season (first half) of frozen Alaska pollock surimi from the United States, which is the main ingredient of fish paste products, is expected to gradually decrease for each grade after this spring. 

Price negotiations between local producers and importers are likely to be 100 to 120 yen lower per kilogram than in the second half of the 2022 B season.

Due to the expansion of international demand for surimi and the depreciation of the yen, the surimi produced in the same country rose to a record high in the fall and winter of 2022.
