THE price of skipjack tuna remains at the record level of USD2 200 per tonne. Yellowfin is curving upwards again. It is currently priced at USD2 600/tonne landed Bangkok – up USD200 since mid-March. Albacore is trading at USD3 750/tonne, slightly down from the price of USD3 800/tonne seen in March and April but considerably costlier than February’s prices of USD3 450/tonne. After a dip in prices for all three in February and March, the prices seem to be reasonably steady. Catches are still reported as poor.
