Chilean Atlantic salmon prices slumped 6.8% to the US in week 24 as produces resumed exports after a lengthy disruption in May because of a fishermen's strike, according to the weekly Salmonex price index.

In the US, average wholesale prices for D trim Atlantic salmon slumped by $0.36 to $4.97 per pound, from $5.33 per pound a week ago.

Prices for 10-12 head-on Atlantic salmon to Brazil rose to $7.39 per kilogram -- a week-on-week increase of $0.03.

In Japan, the average prices for frozen headed and gutted (H&G) coho, sizes 46, remained unchanged at JPY 675/kg, while prices for frozen H&G trout were also unchanged at JPY 785/kg.

Salmonex's index is based on weekly data from sales prices of 15 Chilean producers. The producers have signed a NDA with Salmonex. These producers represent 80% of the fresh supply from Chile.

The price is equivalent to FOB Miami (After handling at cold storage). Trim D represents 72% (aprox) of the supply of fresh fillet from Chile to the US market.
