30 November 2019 |

Chefs Trading's Market Report for December, 2019. Read on for information on what is expected in Costa Rica/Panama, Mexico, Spain and our FIPs and Social Responsibility efforts.


Costa Rica/Panama

We continue to support efforts to foster positive change and move towards sustainability and eventual MSC certification in the Tuna/ Swordfish/Mahi-Mahi fishery. Contact us today to see how you can help support this FIP. https://fisheryprogress.org/fip-profile/costa-rica-large-pelagics-longline-and-green-stick

Fishing is good in Costa Rica and Panama!

We have been seeing smaller Mahi-Mahi and some of the bigger sizes but it is very strange to see so little this season.

Yellowfin Tuna pricing has been low low and we look to see production continue as mahi season has not kicked off but there is Tuna, as always with great off the boat quality, direct shipping from the docks to you, and with our CT Tags all products are Traceable to the boat and supporting the Fishery Improvement Project.  

Swordfish landing are expected with the full moon cycle as usual.

Maricultured Spotted Rose Snappers are continuing to grow in popularity. Whole, Fillet and Butterfiled Fillets are available with a very long shelf life and perfect texture and flavor. Traceable with our CT Tag and Sustainable!

 

Mexico

We are proud to partner with CeDePesca and many other stakeholders and participants in the Mexican Grouper/Snapper Fishery Improvement Project(FIP). A portion of our sales from this fishery will go back to the fishery via the FIP to help support sustainability. Here's a link https://fisheryprogress.org/fip-profile/mexico-yucatan-red-and-black-grouper-longline. Feel free to contact us for more information and to learn how you can help with the complex social, enviromental and economic issues facing this fishery in the effort to become sustainable. 

Black and Red Grouper productiuon is expected to increase and be steady until closer to the holidays. 

Red Snapper volumnes have dramatically increased and are expected to remain strong until closer to the end this month.

As the holidays get closer and the end of this month approaches of course boats will come in as fishers look to spend the holidays with family as we all do and this always causes prices to increase as volumnes decrease the closer we get to the end of the month and year.
