The article deals with the prices of fishery products in the U.S. Quotas on ocean-caught fish, the effects of weather and the popularity of seafood in restaurants are all jacking up prices. The burgeoning aquaculture industry is helping to boost supply and control drastic price fluctuations. The U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts that aquaculture imports should continue to face an expanding market through 2007 as the prices for competing proteins are forecast to go higher.
