Norway salmon price seen falling on more output

Fri 4th January, 2019 1:50pm
OSLO, Jan 4 (Reuters) - The price of Norwegian farmed salmon
is expected to drop next week due to increasing output after the
Christmas and New Year holidays, two industry sources told
Reuters on Friday.
    "It's uncertain. The market believes in prices between 55-60
crowns per kilo next week while producers aim for 60-65 crowns,"
said a producer who declined to be named.
    Salmon prices this week have averaged about 63-64 crowns per
kilo, pushed up by a low number of working days during the
holiday season.
    One exporter expected a drop below 60 crowns per kilo.
    "We expect prices to drop about 5 crowns to about 58-59
crowns per kilo. It's very quiet in the market and still a lot
of trucks with unsold salmon in Oslo for this week," the
exporter said.
    In the forward market, contracts up to 2020 -- except for
the third-quarter 2019 contract -- were still quoted above 60
crowns per kilo.
    The January contract stood at 64.50 crowns per kilo.
