Our basket of meat and fish rose again slightly in price this week by 0.2% on four weeks ago, but remained at its fourth-lowest level since the survey was first published in January.
Our basket is now just 0.1% more expensive than it was at the start of this year.
The biggest change this month was in the price of salmon steak, which rose 12.2% to its highest level this year - the first time the price has risen above £5 per kg since the survey began.
The rise was caused by three of the four retailers increasing their prices of salmon steak substantially, possibly a sign of the reduction in Scottish production, down 20-25% on three years ago.
This rise was mitigated by a 7% fall for beef rump steak though steak mince changed little, falling 0.5%, while chicken breast fillets and whole chicken were down 2.8% and 2.6% respectively. The price of lamb legs rose 5.8%.
