We saw the drag on pricing as expected this week with the Polish holiday and a lot of harvesting coming through. Friday opened at 69.21 NOK pushed up +0.57 NOK or 0.83% on the previous Thursday but had given this back on Monday at 68.39. Tuesday was softer at 68.05 and Wednesday and Thursday continued the downward trend with a lot of fish in the market down 67.5 and 66.54 respectively. Total fall top to bottom 3.85%. A lot more smaller fish meant that the spread between 3-4 and 5-6 gapped reaching up to 8 NOK during the week. From the recent peak on the 11th September the market is off over 10.1%. For next week there is a lot of fish being harvested and a further holiday on Friday 11th in many parts of Europe. Buyers are eyeing lower 60’s with sellers similar ball-park to this week. As usual we will see…
