IN BRIEF - Miyagi farmed coho salmon continues to rise to 757 yen (U$D 4.84)

Thursday, June 06, 2024

Late May: Landings begin in earnest, demand is concentrated

[Miyagi] The average price of farmed coho salmon produced in Miyagi in late May (May 21-31) was 757 yen per kilogram. This is 1% higher (10 yen higher) than in mid-May. Landings have begun in earnest, with the total landing volume over a 10-day period exceeding 1,000 tons for the first time this season. However, with the season's cumulative production expected to fall short of the previous period, buyers' desire to purchase was stronger than usual, resulting in concentrated demand. The market price continued to rise.

The average size in late May was 1.5-2 kilograms per fish. Landing volume was 1,368, down 20% from the same period last year.
