2010 Retail Review (Q4)

Richard B Watson

In the 52 weeks to 25th Dec 2010 the GB seafood retail market slowed. Worth £2.839 billion, up 0.6% on last year, with volume sales falling -1.0% to 377,468 tonnes. This modest value growth was driven by the chilled sector (3.2%) by positive growth in the top 3 chilled species: salmon (2%), Warm Water Prawns (9.4%), and Cod (5%). Both the value and volume of ambient fell sharply (-4.6% and -4.3% respectively), as a result of a corresponding fall in the volume and value of tuna and salmon. Wholesale skipjack prices rose by nearly 100% at the beginning of 2010 (Infofish Trade News) . With the recent reduction in catch quota, rising demand from new markets (Asia) and uncertainty over oil and tinplate prices, further price increases are predicted for 2011 (Globefish)
