Market Update

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.
