Frozen tuna sales

This article was originally published in Foodnews

AUSTRALIA expects to ship more frozen bluefin tuna to Japan this year. Brian Jeffries, the Australian Southern Bluefin Tuna Industry Association's chief executive, told The port Lincoln Times that in the past few years the tuna shipped to Japan had been about 80-85% frozen, and the proportion sent frozen could be even higher in 2011. There is currently more demand in the frozen market, but that could change as the season progressed. The level of demand as well as prices will be known by the end of June and there will also be different prices depending on quality, he explained.
