IFQ News August 2019


Fishing reports remain positive in most areas. Grounds prices continue to be stable but marginal. Quota supply remains high with unfished still available. Expect sales activity to increase in the fall, with buying opportunities available for unfished quota.


Market activity has slowed with the start of salmon seasons, and supply is outpacing demand in all areas. We continue to hear reports of an abundance of whales, compounded by fewer boats and small fish. This has resulted in a further drop in SE & WY quota prices. Buying opportunities remain, unblocked and unfished available.
