Hello folks --
We wanted to kick the week off by highlighting not the biggest seafood specie winners, but the biggest losers at US retail. We had way more fun than we should have making the comparative graphs, but we think it illustrates the decline better than words.
Looking back, readers were clearly hungry for some scallop news, and this analysis summed up the situation with a quote from one major trader: "This scallop season has been unlike any other, and I've been doing this for 30 years."
Last week's most-read:

From the Archive: A rags-to-riches story
I'm going to highlight a person this week, since our archive is extensive and he's one of the more colorful characters the seafood industry has seen. Take a look back at the career of Bernt Bodal, the former CEO and owner of US fishing giant American Seafoods, through our archived stories. It's truly a unique rags-to-riches story, starting with our first story on the man in 2001.
We have 200,000 articles stretching back over two decades, so go ahead and get your research on.
Don't miss our next Seafood Investor Forum in London on Sept. 29th in-person at the Wallbrook Building. We have a fantastic lineup of speakers and panels lined up. More info on the event and registration here.
