2018年一月29号上映 - 今天我们要谈谈阿拉斯加狭鳕。 狭鳕上周在威廉王子湾开始捕鱼，今年的渔业大幅度减少配额。
January 29, 2018 - Today we are going to talk about Alaskan Pollock. Pollock Fishing began in the Prince William Sound last week, alongside a dramatic quota decrease for this season's fishery.
The Guideline harvest levels for Prince William Sound Pollock has decreased annually since 2016, sometimes closing early when bycatch levels were met. The 2018 Harvest level is set at 7.1 million pounds, down 25 percent from last year's harvest level. Harvests have also decreased annually since 2015, notably in 2017 when harvests were only 44 percent of the quota. Last year the fishery was targeted by 8 vessels and lasted 71 days after closing by regulation - this year we anticipate a quick season as several large processors have begun fishing at the opening on January 20th.
近年来收成较低的原因有两个 - 低母鱼量和较低的鱼重量。 2017年的性别比率是有史以来第二低，只有22％母鱼，引起船队和买家的关注。 2017年威廉王子湾的平均鳕鱼重量为1.3磅，是自1995年以来的最低平均重量，接近一般2.4磅的平均重量的一半。
Reasons for lower harvests in recent years are twofold - low female percentages and low fish weights. The sex ratio in 2017 was the second lowest on record at only 22 percent female, causing concern for fleets and buyers. Average Pollock weights in the Prince William Sound in 2017 were 1.3 pounds, the lowest average weight since 1995 and nearly half the typical average weight of 2.4 pounds.
--- 一条1.3磅狭鳕只会产生一个约2.9盎司去皮无骨片。 因此，过去一年，较大尺寸价格溢价几乎为每磅1美元，这并不奇怪。 较大的狭鳕去年在白令海和海湾被捕，所以我们看到一些4-6盎司，甚至6-8盎司的鱼片上市。
--- The recovery on a 1.3 lb Pollock in the round yields a skinless boneless fillet of about 2.9 oz. It's no surprise then that larger fillet sizes had a price premium of almost $1.00 per pound for the past year. Larger Pollock was caught in the Bering Sea and the Gulf last year, so we did see some 4-6oz and even 6-8oz fillets come to market.
2-4oz Shatterpack狭鳕鱼片目前在西海岸每磅2.05-2.10美元，4-6盎司鱼片每磅2.85美元。 根据2018年低母鱼比例和更低的配额，我们预计2018年的收成会有所减少。 如果白令海可捕捞大型的狭鳕，预计2-4盎司和4-6盎司鱼片之间的价格差距会有所收窄。
2-4oz Shatterpack pollock fillets are currently round $2.05 - $2.10 per pound on the West Coast, with 4-6oz fillets reaching $2.85 per pound. Based on low female ratios and an even lower quota for 2018, we anticipate a smaller harvest for 2018. Expect the price gap between 2-4oz and 4-6oz fillets to close a little bit if the Gulf and Bering Sea produce larger Pollock too.
