Monday, January 18, 2021, 18:00 (GMT + 9)
From January 11 to 17, the price dynamics of frozen fish in the wholesale segment of the domestic market showed multidirectional trends.
In the Far East region, an increase in the supply of fish and problems with the sale of finished products due to quarantine restrictions in China provide a reduction in the cost of pollock (72 rubles / kg, -6.5 %) and herring (65 rubles / kg, -4.4%). Prices for other types of frozen fish have not changed.
In the Northwest, although export demand was expected to resume, prices for cod (200 RUB / kg, + 1%) and haddock (135 RUB / kg, + 1.5%) strengthened slightly. Demand on the domestic market and rising prices of similar imported products contribute to the increase in prices for Atlantic mackerel (145 rubles / kg, + 3.6%) and herring (80 rubles / kg, + 3 , 9%).
In the central regions, the dynamics of prices for pollock (93 rubles / kg, -2.1%) and mackerel (157 rubles / kg, + 1.3%) was influenced by changes in sales prices in the fishing regions, however, a significant level of commodity stocks and unsold products leveled out price fluctuations. Prices for other types of frozen fish have not changed.
Retail prices are growing. In the period from January 1 to 11, the average consumer price level of frozen uncut fish increased by 0.4%. Compared to the beginning of the year, prices increased by 0.4%.
