A poster inquired about scallop pricing around the country, and it prompted me to ask about halibut per pound.
My local fishmonger (upstate NY) hasn't carried it for about a month, and she said it's the price @ ~$30 per pound. She doesn't think it will move, so she won't get it.
I have paid $20-22 per pound, but agree that $30 is a bit steep. The shop is an excellent source of fish and she'll only stock what's in "season" (if that's the appropriate term for fish.) They drive down to the NYC market, so I can understand her reluctance to bring back fish that may go bad waiting for buyers.
What is the market price per pound in your area, if I may ask?
I miss my halibut.
