It's been another shaky year for the Alaska cod fishery despite a slight bump in the total allowable catch in 2019, executives in the sector told IntraFish.

Excess inventory from A season, unusually warm weather heading into B season, the China-US trade war and prices hovering above $2 (€1.79) per pound are dampening enthusiasm for the product, according to some suppliers.

Edmonds, Washington-based Tatoosh Seafoods President Tony Cadden told IntraFish there is a lack of interest in US Pacific cod from domestic customers right now due to these conflating factors.
