European Price Report - December 2017

Year published: 2017

Monthly prices for about 600 fish products and an overview of the major trends on the European market, reported by an extensive correspondent network.

December 2017.

Abstract: Demand is strong during this Christmas period, typically a time of high seafood consumption. Two categories of product are proving most popular, one being traditional products such as carp and cured cod and the other being luxury products such as lobster, oyster and crab. Prices for some species are severely elevated but this will change in most cases after Christmas and the year-end rush. However, for certain seafood items such as cephalopods, extremely tight supply means there is no end in sight for the upward trend.
