Peter Pan set an initial base price of $1.10 in June, before fishing began. The company upped the price to $1.25 to stay competitive with other processors, according to its Bristol Bay manager.

The company announced a base price of $1.10. This is the first time in at least 25 years that a Bristol Bay processor has announced its base price this early in the year.
