The price of Norway-caught snow crab has fallen by half in recent months, according to data from the Norwegian Seafood Council.

Last week, IntraFish reported prices for Norwegian king crab were being suppressed due to a glut of Russian crab in East Asia.

The situation for snow crab is even more difficult, according to Josefine Voraa, shellfish lead at the council.

In the US market, frozen clusters -- the shoulder and bones of crab -- normally sell for $17 (€15.58)
