Halibut Pricing 2019

 

The Halibut Collective Agreement establishes prices based on the actual market returns of processers/buyers. Establishing a price for halibut is a multi-step process that takes places over a period of four weeks.

The initial price for halibut is set at the beginning of Week 2. The initial price may increase when the final price is set in Week 4, depending on the market returns of the halibut sold by the Buyer/Processer. This 4-week process is repeated for each week during the halibut season.

Halibut Pricing Process

• Week 1: Harvesters sell halibut to processers/buyers

• Week 2: On Tuesday, the initial price for halibut sold in Week 1 is established. Harvesters are paid for the halibut sold in Week 1 according to this initial price. Processers/Buyers sell halibut bought in Week 1 to market.

• Week 3: Week 1 halibut still entering the market.

• Week 4: By noon on Tuesday, Processers/Buyers will have submitted all receipts for halibut bought in Week 1 to the independent third party (Quinlan and Taylor). By the end of the business day on Tuesday, the final price for halibut caught and sold in Week 1 will be established. If the final price is higher than the initial price, the difference will be paid to the harvester at the next pay period. The final price cannot be lower than the initial price.
