Stable salmon prices for the sixth week in a row, but challenging for larger salmon


One again minor variation in the salmon price.

The feedback from the industry after lunch Friday gives an intense feeling of déja-Vu.
For the sixth week in a row, stable prices are expected in the coming week.


Every Friday after lunch, SalmonBusiness report spot prices for salmon. These are fish to be delivered the following week. We contact several links in the value chain, including farmers, exporters and importers, and always have at least five independent sources, although not all sources are necessarily displayed. We vary the sources we use and do not use the same sources each time.

“Prices are stable, there are smaller movements,” says one exporter to SalmonBusiness.

“3-5 kilos is NOK 52 out of Oslo. 6+ is 46 kroner. 7+ is at 43-44 kroner,” he continues.

Another exporter reports of “a very quiet market” from a home office with heavy multitasking.

He outlines the following price rents (for harvesters) for fish to be distributed next week.
“3-6 kg is 49-50 kroner and 6+ is down to 42-45 kroner.”

A buyer reports problems for big size salmon.
“I don’t quite know what to say, but it keeps being stable”, he begins, adding that; “6- is also stable.”

“6+ kg. on the other hand is low and the price is going down,” he further states.
