Fur Harvesters Auction Inc 2022 Market Update Since our last market update we have had greatly increased interest, with calls coming in from overseas buyers wanting marten (sables). All have been advised that no sables will be offered ahead of our scheduled March 2022 auction. The Russian sable auction last month saw increased levels over last season and it seems that Canadian sables are in even more demand. We are expecting a shorter catch than traditional years and this will help raise price levels further.

Buyers are requesting quality shearing beaver, and of course castoreum continues to sell at historical levels. Demand for muskrats is solid.

Interest in Canadian/Alaskan lynx is growing and in recent weeks we have refused sales stating that these goods will only be available at our March 2022 auction. As well, bobcat/lynx cats are in demand and also will not be offered until March.

This is the news for now on what has transpired since early December and with that we thank you all for your support of FHA and wish you a Happy Healthy 2022.
