M&J Seafood share their tips on fresh fish and more for the month of May and ahead.
Scottish and Norwegian Salmon supply continues to exceed demand. Prices are lower than they were predicted to be and should stay that way throughout the month. This is driven by Russia’s ban of Norwegian fish and the Kronor being weak against the Pound.
Availability of Icelandic and Baltic Cod and Codlings from the Baltic will be good however, towards the end of May, the Norwegian fleet will start moving to different fishing grounds to hunt for Haddock and Codlings – this may affect the price of Cod at the back end of the month..
Haddock fishing in both Iceland and Norway will be in full swing, however the Norwegian vessels will switch to smaller size fish as the larger fish move into deeper water to spawn. This means we should have good volumes of 5-6 and 6-8oz fillets in stock.
