Arctic char on the rise
Following a post-Easter lull, demand for Arctic char and other grill-friendly fish is expected to strengthen as summer nears.
As a result, Arctic char imports are expected to increase in May and June. The world gets the bulk of its Arctic char from Iceland and northern Canada. Iceland is the world's No. 1 Arctic char producer, with annual exports totaling 1,700 metric tons. The country's annual output is projected to expand to 5,000 metric tons metric tons in the coming years.
