IN BRIEF - Frozen sockeye prices continue to slide

Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Lots of frozen sockeye carryover from the 2022 season are pushing down wild salmon prices across the board.

The massive record-breaking sockeye season from 2022 continues to have a major impact across the entire salmon complex.

The most immediate is the general weakening on frozen sockeye. With the upcoming season about a month away, there is pressure to move through older inventories. Many market participants report heavy discounting among some sellers to incentivize sales and keep things moving.

Sockeye 2-3 lb. frozen fillets at the start of 2023 were at an average price of about $9.25/lb. Prices started to fall at the beginning of February and continue to do so. Pricing is currently at $7.75, down 16.2% in only three months.

IN BRIEF - Goodbye, fish and chips? New England haddock imperiled by overfishing

Wednesday, May 17, 2023

PORTLAND, Maine — A staple seafood species caught by East Coast fishers for centuries is experiencing overfishing, and regulators have cut catch quotas by more than 80% to prevent the fish’s population from collapse.

Haddock are one of the most popular Atlantic fish, and a favorite for fish and chips and other New England seafood dishes.

But fewer haddock will be caught in New England this year after regulators cut fishing quotas. A recent scientific assessment found that the Gulf of Maine haddock stock declined unexpectedly, and that meant the catch quotas for the fish were unsustainably high, federal fishing managers said.

The NOAA added the Gulf of Maine haddock stock to its overfishing list last month. The New England Fishery Management Council, a regulatory board, has lowered catch limits of the fish in an attempt to halt the overfishing, said agency spokesperson Allison Ferreira.
