ADVISORY: Peter Pan Seafood offers high grounds prices, welcomes back fishermen

WHO

Peter Pan Seafood Co., LLC

WHAT

Copper River salmon prices

DESCRIPTION

At the close of the fishery May 20, New Peter Pan Seafood had pushed the price to $12.60 per pound for sockeye and $19.60 per pound for kings. Peter Pan Vice President of Operations Jon Hickman says that this is an all-time high price for both species out of the Copper River Flats by any major Alaska producer to the best of his recollection. Leaders at Peter Pan are looking forward to being a foundation for all fishermen, communities and the market. Peter Pan Seafood is committed to the fishermen and the resource and are firm believers that they have the ability, on this highly coveted early Copper River fish, to offer these prices because of the company’s deep market penetration and value-added philosophy into niche markets when limited supply of this amazing resource is made available.

Under new ownership this season, Peter Pan has committed to providing the best service and support possible to its fleet. These strong prices are evidence of that commitment. Peter Pan Vice President of Operations Jon Hickman is available for an interview today.
