Seafood: Why so expensive?

November 5, 2017 11:48am CST
How much do you usually pay for the seafood that you like to eat? I know, in general, they are usually expensive (the pocket sometimes comes to cry )... But why does it happen (even in places where they are most common)? What would be your explanation for it?

I feel that when its expensive by the coast is to take what they can from tourism. When its expensive very far inland its the measure they take to keep it from spoiling. I paid $10 for a pint of fresh oysters last week but they did feed two people with fries as a side.

It is a luxury item. You can't farm clams or lobster or flounder.

They are difficult to catch many times and they spoil easily.

Unfortunately because of human overpopulation we are over-fishing our seas and oceans. I worry about the future unless there is some kind of protection in place to allow for marine life to flourish again.

I often wondered about this to. I live on the coast of Florida and see fishermen coming in with their daily catch but I have to pay a lot to buy any of these.

You are right that usually seafood are much more expensive. Here it is seasoning to go fishing for the seafood as they need some time to grow up. And today the gasoline price is increasing and the costs are much more expensive than before. Perhaps this is why the seafood is usually expensive.

I often see food and think it's so expensive these days.

Here in Latvia we cannot get too much seafood like shell fish which I love. If it shows up it is way too expensive. I hardly ever eat seafood now.
