Massachusetts Rock- The heat wave has abated, and the rock are biting better – quota is 60% caught up.
Local Rock- Recreational rockfish season returns today (Aug 1), so charter captains will not be doing much commercial hook & lining. We will have some this week, but the supply is not as plentiful.

North Atlantic Sword- August, September, and October are the three best months of the year to feature swords from both a quality and pricing perspective.
Icelandic Cod Loin- Fewer fish are landed this time of year. Market up slightly.
Venezuelan Crabmeat- Less supply and slowing weekly demand make for a shaky low $20 a pound jumbo market. Lump and superclaw remain firm.

CK Lobster Meat- Frozen market is now under $35 a pound.
Wild Sockeye Salmon- Record-breaking harvest means fillets are still under $10 a pound.
