Did You Know?

The salmon market trades fundamentally like every other commodity market? We have seen and continue to see significant volatility in many agricultural commodities.

Markets and platforms help both buyers and sellers, in periods of high or low volumes find price levels and trading partners, and provide the mechanism to connect, engage, and execute. Because markets are fluid and supply and demand ebb and flow it pays to be connected, present and involved.


Q. Can I arrange contracts on the LFEX?

A. One of the many features of the LFEX platform is the ability to handle contracts between parties. Buyers can put out their requests and receive offers for contracts for any time period and dates.
