Norwegian salmon price seen at NOK 53-56/kilo next week - industry sources

Fri 30th November, 2018 1:05pm
OSLO, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Norwegian farmed salmon is expected
to trade in a 53-56 crowns per kilo price range for deliveries
in Oslo next week, compared to 53-54 crowns this week, two
industry sources told Reuters on Friday.
    "We expect 53-54 crowns per kilo. When we try to push prices
higher, the buyers go away," said a producer who declined to be
named.
    "It seems customers have bought fish for storage in
anticipation of higher prices before Christmas and we no longer
expect a Christmas rally," the producer added.
    Prices this week had been expected in the range 50-51 crowns
per kilo but came out at about 53-54 crowns.
    An exporter predicted prices in the range 55-56 crowns.
    "We are hoping that prices can remain at this level but we
doubt prices will surge much more before Christmas, " the
exporter said.
    In the forward market, prices for all contracts up to 2020
-- except for the November 2018 and third-quarter 2019 contracts
-- were quoted above 60 crowns per kilo.   
    The highest price was for the second quarter 2019 contract,
which stood at 65.50 crowns per kilo, little changed from the
previous week.
