Wow, we've broken clean through the $20 USD level for halibut, here locally.

$20.99 USD a pound at the local Raley's grocery store.

Makes me wonder how much the fish stores (not that we have any good ones I'm aware of locally), and the upscale grocery markets are charging?

$14.99 USD a pound at Safeway, which is still rather daft.

The US dollar is worth about what the Mexican peso is, I suspect, in overpriced Cali.

I don't even like halibut.

Oh, I get it now. Halibut is code for a new exotic pharmaceutical.

Over $30 USD a pound here at the fish market. Northern Westchester County, NY. I do like halibut but haven't bought any in some time.

Buy something else. When they can't sell Halibut for what they ask, the price will come down. Or you'll find something else to enjoy.

You should pay it, just for the halibut.

What's that got to do with the price of fish.

From a quick google on the price of Halibut: "The halibut fishery is very carefully managed and tightly regulated because of their slow life cycle. Fishing is limited to small windows (usually 1-2 days) where a set quota is caught and then fishing is closed."

It's a bit cheaper in Canada At my local supermarket a pound costs 22 Canadian or $16.50 USD.

Parzival. thank you for the Friday funny! Any fish that requires a shot in the head with a .357 before it can be dragged aboard commands a premium.

You know it is overpriced when the large King Crab legs are cheaper than the fish.
