Salmon Prices Set To Soar

With Easter fast approaching, M&J Seafood warn of steady price increases on fish favourites such as Salmon and Lobster. Read on to find out what's hot in the world of seafood this month and beyond.
Salmon has long been a firm favourite for consumers and it seems that demand is outstripping supply, with prices set to soar prior to Easter.

Whilst fish giant M&J report that volumes from Norway are currently in line with the same period last year, catches are expected to drop from 26-30 thousand tonnes a week to a reduced 20-22 thousand tonnes a week over coming weeks. This coupled with Chilean harvest reductions and seasonal popularity, will apply pressure to pricing.
