1. Stocks of frozen Atlantic cod fillets held in Canada on March 1, 1953 amounted to 3,915,000 pounds as compared to 942,000 pounds on March 1, 1952.

The department has no information on stocks of Canadian fish held in the United States.

2. Prices of cod to fishermen for the 1953 summer season have not yet been established. Currently, prices at Halifax are approximately one-half cent per pound below those paid at the same date a year ago. Prices for the summer season are normally established early in April when the fishing ports of New Brunswick, Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton open for fishing.

3. The fisheries prices support board is keeping a very close watch on the current situation and will be prepared to make recommendation to the government should conditions warrant such action when the new price levels are established.
