Previously, one of the hallmarks of the fresh Venezuelan crab meat market was its ability to fluctuate by five dollars per pound within a week. However, as we enter the summer with peak demand, the market remains steady at a relatively low level for Venezuelan jumbo lump crabmeat.
The only explanation appears to be that the sheer volume of crabmeat arriving in Miami each week has caught the producers off guard, making them hesitant to raise prices. Commodity pricing can be likened to a chemical equation; for every action, there is a reaction. Currently, there seems to be an equilibrium between the immense volume arriving each week and the large quantity being sold. So, keep selling and make some money!
