Re: Alaska Salmon Price Report
2/4/2020


To Whom It May Concern:

The Annual Alaska Salmon Price Report for the calendar 2018 year is now available at:
http://tax.alaska.gov/programs/programs/reports/index.aspx?60624

We compile the report from the 2018 tri-annual Alaska Salmon Price Reports. Please note that some production areas and some production types are not shown on the report due to confidentiality requirements (see below). Information for these areas are included in the total.

The reporting threshold for processors is 1 million pounds of salmon products sold at wholesale in the previous calendar year. The following are parameters used in producing the report:

  • "Wholesale price" is the price paid by a nonaffiliated buyer to a processor or its affiliate, without deduction for costs of property sold, materials used, insurance, labor, services, labeling, transportation, storage, interest, losses, or any other expense.
  • "Production Area" is where the product that was sold to the nonaffiliated buyer was last processed into a reportable salmon product form within Alaska by the processor or its affiliate.
  • "Product forms" are those listed in statute. These are the only product forms that are included in the Alaska Salmon Price Report database and are the only ones that processors are required to report. No quality distinctions are made within each product form category.


Confidentiality Requirements

We do not report information for some areas when it could identify the quantity or value produced by a particular processor. We use the following guidelines when evaluating confidentiality:

  • If there are three or more processors in a given area, the information is reported unless one processor accounts for over 80% of the total value or if two processors account for over 95% of the total value.
  • If there are only one or two processors for a given area, the information is not reported.
