The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) has set a total allowable catch of 1.35 million metric tons (MT) for the forthcoming Alaska pollock season, up slightly on the 2016 TAC.

The higher quota is set to sustain the pressure on pollock prices, which have been low due to the abundant supply as well as the ongoing Russian food import ban.

In volume terms, pollock is Alaska’s most important fisheries product and the state’s second most important in value, with a total first-sales...

The U.K. fishing fleet will be allowed to catch higher volumes of whitefish in the North Sea in 2017 following the conclusion of negotiations between the EU and Norway and agreements reached on catch levels for shared stocks after exchanges.

Because North Sea cod enters the EU landing obligation in 2017, the final total allowable catch (TAC) for this stock rises 16 percent from 33,651 metric tons (MT) this year to 39,220 MT, comprising two elements: Firstly, the unadjusted quota which is...

Pangasius production in Vietnam for the first 10 months of this year amounted to 996,076 metric tons (MT), an increase of more than 9 percent year-on-year.

The prices have been buoyed by increased overseas demand ahead of the Christmas and New Year holidays, according to the Vietnam...

European whitefish buyers have taken a large collective sigh of relief following the decision taken by the Icelandic fishing fleet to end its strike after just a few days.

There were strong fears in the market that the industrial action over crew manning levels on pelagic and whitefish vessels, which began at 2300 on 10 November, would quickly lead to price hikes for fresh fish, particularly cod and haddock, as the volumes coming out of Norway are low at this time of year.
