Fish prices drop

Fish prices took a tumble this week, as fine weather led to an oversupply at the fishmarkets both here and down south.

The downturn comes as a marked change from last week’s figures, which saw reasonable prices across the species despite steady landings.

Whitefish prices: cats £1.37-£1.87; cod £1.00-£1.76; dogs £0.60-£1.44; haddock £0.56-£2.24; hake £1.20-£1.66; halibut £3.60-£8.42; John Dory £4.50-£8.40; lemons £1.00-£4.80; ling £0.60-£1.09; lythe £1.80-£2.47; megrim £0.60-£4.30; monk £1.25-£4.70; plaice £0.45-£1.38; saithe £0.45-£0.68; skate £1.03-£1.80; squid £2.95-£4.85; whiting £0.42-£2.37 LANDINGS BY DAY Lerwick, Scalloway Boats, Boxes, Boats, Boxes Friday, 9, 620, 5, 965 Monday, 7, 1105, 2, 600 Tuesday, 5, 815, 2, 730 Wednesday, 2, 265, 2, 394 Thursday, 7, 1130, 4, 760 TOTALS, 30, 3935, 15, 3449
