JULY SEAFOOD MARKET REPORT

ICYBAY Ian's Golden Pollock SticksSwai prices remain stable in a somewhat quiet market. The recent US Customs ruling increasing duties for some suppliers has had little effect on the market due to the presence of inventories here in the USA available for the market. Still, the indications are for a firming market later this Fall.

MAY SEAFOOD MARKET REPORT

05 2014 seafood report icybay pollock tacos.jpgThere is no change in the Pollock market for May . The worldwide quota for Alaskan Pollock remains somewhat unchanged.

Supply on both fresh & frozen oysters will be tight through the summer of 2014 and we can expect higher prices for what will be available. Several factors are contributing to the shortage; a)excess fresh water released on the Oyster beds, b) we are currently in a low cycle for harvesting in general and c) a new FDA regulation on time & temperature between harvesting & landing at the processing plants.

APRIL SEAFOOD MARKET REPORT

ICYBAY Tilapia WaffleTilapia is still struggling to keep pace with demand. The Chinese New Year's Die Off has continued to push prices up. Replacement cost on 3-5 oz. IQF is ranging from $2.42 to $2.50/lb. FOB. Urner Barry price indicators have not increased since December despite higher raw material costs at the farm and plant level. Prices should continue to increase until mid-June or July unless there is a sudden spike in inventory due to the end of Lent. Large fish for 7-9 oz. shallow skinned fillets and 5-7 oz. Fully Deep Skinned fillets are very hard to source.

DECEMBER SEAFOOD MARKET REPORT

ICYBAY Lobster TailsCold water lobster's Southwest Nova Scotia fishery is now open for December. Predictions are that large tails, 7 oz. and larger, will command significant price premiums compared to smaller tails. Tails are likely to be stronger in demand than meat. Although the season is likely to be abundant in terms of supply, predictions are that prices are not likely to moderate since the second Maine run did not materialize in October and there are sizeable commitments in the industry still unmet.
