Abstract

A new retailing trend is threatening the Maine salmon industry. Salmon from Chile are being "dumped" on the market at below-production cost. In the 1980s, overproduction of Norwegian salmon led to a similar problem, bankrupting Maine's largest producer before United States regulations could be adopted. Maine waters are considered ideal for salmon farming, and salmon has been one of the brighest spots in the Maine fishing industry. Maine salmon are prized by chefs, but can be undersold to supermarkets by less-fresh imported fish. Details, related blurb on Appledore Foods.
