Archived Market News Data Customized Query Builder
This tool will enable you to build a dataset of fish prices and quantities reported by the Boston Market News office. Begin by selecting a "Start Date" and "End Date" for your query. The first date for which we have data is August 1, 2012 and the last date is December 31, 2018. For earlier dates, please see archived market news data.
Please note: the BASE auction does not report average prices. We have reported the average price as the midpoint between high and low.
