White fish prices hit opposing tracks on domestic and export markets for Murmansk fishermen

February 9, 2021 15:35

As per early February wholesale prices for cod, haddock, saithe and cod roe in Murmansk have been developing in a situation of good demand versus insufficient supply. The inventories of several other species have also gone short, reports Megafishnet.com.

Meanwhile, despite COVID-19 restrictions by China, seafood export business of Murmansk fishing companies has been proceeding as usual. Contrary to the domestic market, the export prices have slightly declined mainly due to the rise in the shipping costs and the growing seasonal supply from the new quota catch.
