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.

JUNE SEAFOOD MARKET REPORT

06 2014 seafood report icybay baby clam meatThe market for whole cooked crawfish is quiet with unsettled replacement costs from China. The tail meat market is steady. Indications are for slightly higher prices this year since there are excepted to be fewer containers of tail meat produced this year.

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.

SEAFOOD FAVORITES OF THE WORLD'S GREATEST GOLFERS

See some of the favorite seafood dinners from the Master's Champions for the Champions Dinner. See the Intrafish article.

This weekend the golfing world will be tuned into The Masters championship, considered the pinnacle of professional golf.

The Champions Dinner, which brings together winners of previous Masters on the Tuesday night of championship week, is a showcase for culinary imagination and, yes, seafood. The previous year's winner gets to select the dinner's menu - and he also has to pay for producing that menu.

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.
