Fresh haddock buyers in the Northeast United States have been enjoying a fairly stable supply of fish this winter thanks to good weather and an unusually high concentration of schools, especially on Georges Bank. However, prices are primed to increase as winter storms develop, fishermen run out of fishing days and reduced Canadian quotas limit supplies.

Prices for large, whole haddock have been steady between USD 1.65 and 1.75 a pound, f.o.b. Boston, with scrod haddock hovering at around USD 1.55
