This article was originally published in Foodnews

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.
