Wild Salmon – Fresh Coho from the Columbia River and Willapa Harbor are in stock now. The Coho are running large this year with the weight between 8-10LB. The next Alaskan season will open October 15th for the Winter Troll King Salmon fishery.
Halibut – Halibut Season is scheduled to end on November 15th. 91% of the quota is already landed and prices are beginning to surge up. Supply may become erratic due to early winter storms and limited fishing capacity. If halibut is a key item the conversion to re-fresh or frozen product maybe earlier than normal.
Ground Fish – Dover Sole and Rock Fish are in good supply.
Dungeness Crab – As expected the Dungeness fishery in Blaine on Oct 6th has created a flurry of activity in the live export market. As a result Whole Cooked Dungeness opened with strong prices. The crabs have a high in-fill ratio and better than normal sizing.
Frozen Market – This year marked the greatest Frasier River Sockeye run in the past 100 years. This massive amount of fish has created a nice value for consumers who want to keep eating wild throughout the winter. Contact your sales representative for pricing on frozen sockeye in all product forms.
