01 September 2020 |

Chefs Trading's Market Report for September, 2020. Read on for information on what is expected in our supply chain as well as our Funding model supporting social responsibility and sustainability initiatives featuring our patented CT Traceability Tags that comes with our products giving us complete International Traceability from the boat to distributors and chefs and all the way to the end consumer.

Costa Rica / Panama

Yellowfin Tuna offerings have increased from last month, August is generally a tougher month for Tuna landings all over the world. We still expect to see quality landing in Costa Rica and with our larger supply we still look to see more than usual, however with Mahi about to possibly take over they will almost certainly be slightly less and more pricey especialy sometime by the end of the month to mid October when Mahi season kicks of.

Swordfish landing are also expected to continue to be strong especially with the moon cycle.

Mahi production has been good here and there all year and is expected to dramatically increase. Be ready, by mid October landings should start to be heavy with high quality Mahi, prices will go low low on Fresh HG and fillets as landing increase from October thru Feburuary. 

Slik & Lane Snappers production should continue to increase as well. 

Groupers should also be in steady supply.

All products as usual are Traceable with our CT Tag which shows our supply chain distributors and the end consumer where and how the product was caught as well as who caught it among other information to ensure traceability that the product is caught legally and is also associated with either sustainable methods or is helping the fishery move toward more sustainable practices via a Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) or other social or supply chain improvement projects.



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 production is expected to rise dramatically this month as the Octopus ends and fishers go back to full scale usual fishing.

Yellowtail and Lane Snappers should see a increase in landings this month as well.

American Red Snapper volumnes are also expected to increse this month.
