Nasdaq exiting Seafood commodities

Euronext acknowledges Nasdaq’s decision to exit its current Seafood commodities clearing service. It will be business as usual until the end of December 2024 or until all contracts for 2024 have been finally settled.  All trade members may trade Fish Pool contracts in NOK settled with Nasdaq Clearing as always for the 2024 contracts.  There will however not be any 2025 contracts listed for trading and clearing in NOK.  Nasdaq Clearing will thus close down its seafood clearing when the Dec-24 contract has been finally settled.

Euronext intends to introduce a new EUR-denominated Fish Pool contract, cleared by Euronext Clearing. Euronext is considering the possibility to introduce the contract as soon as summer 2024 and is starting to engage with market participants. Following this integration, members will benefit from Euronext’s enhanced distribution and liquidity, and a more streamlined and efficient trading experience. This contract will be cleared by Euronext Clearing, our pan-European multi-asset-class clearing house.
