In 2021, Alaska's Bristol Bay salmon fishermen were paid the highest prices for their fish since 2018, with Silver Bay Seafoods and Leader Creek being the top price setters thus far, paying $1.77 (€1.56) per pound for chilled and bled fish.

Major buyers such as Peter Pan set the base price for salmon at $1.10 in June. Those prices increased significantly for most companies heading later into the season, according to the latest data from the Bristol Bay Fishermen's Association (BBFA).
