Demand for farmed salmon in the US market has cooled as consumers push back against rising prices during a period of widespread inflation.

"Record high retail prices right now have put a brake on demand," Cesar Lago, president of Chilean salmon farmer Camanchaca's US office, told IntraFish.

The softening demand, in addition to an expected flood of wild salmon heading into the market in the coming months, has triggered a retraction in wholesale spot prices.

Market sources now put prices for fresh D-Trim salmon fillets FOB Miami in the $6.50-$7.00
