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 Salmon volumes from Norway are currently in line with the same period last year, however catches are expected to drop from 26-30 thousand tonnes a week to a reduced 20-22 thousand tonnes a week over coming weeks - impacting costs for Easter. This coupled with Chilean harvest reductions and seasonal popularity, will apply pressure to pricing. Top picks for April Cod & Haddock – Slow season start along with unexpected poor weather will
affect supplies in April and May. Sea Bass & Bream – Steady prices and good availability apart from 600-800g
Frozen Rosso Prawns – Demand is growing as Rosso Prawns are increasingly
used as an alternative to Black Tiger Prawns, pushing prices up. FAS Whitefish – Prices affected by 2019 Barents Sea quota cuts, high
demand and lack of smaller fillets. Scampi – Continued high demand and low landings driving prices up. Switch Up Menus
