Chilean Sea Bass

Chilean Sea Bass Market Starting to Come to Grips with Reality

We Love It When You Share Our Content


One fish that has remained stubbornly expensive through 2022 is the Chilean Sea Bass. Skinless fillets were almost $30 a pound all last year. But that party is over, and the price pendulum is swinging the other way. We dropped 10% this week to $26.95/lb. That is still expensive, but we are headed in the right direction. Casinos, cruise ships, and hotels are the driving forces behind this fish market; as economic activity worldwide slows, so goes the value of “Chili bass”.

Prices are subject to change.
