Salmon prices levelling off before expected peak during the Christmas season
Farmed salmon prices weakened in November in the European market leading to concerns among farmers and exporters. In fact, average prices are somewhat lower than those of last year in the same period, but of course much higher than in 2004. Producers are still making good profits so the main concern is the Minimum Import Price level in the EU markets. November is however a weak month while volumes started to pick up in December with rising prices as a result.
