02/10/2015: EUMOFA monthly highlights
The European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture Products (EUMOFA) has published its latest bulletin. In this issue:
  • In Greece, the decrease in hake and picarel first-sales value caused an overall drop in first-sales value during the first five months of 2015, despite increased first-sales value of anchovy, red mullet, and sardine. In Sweden, a significant decrease of the first-sales volume of flounder caused an increase of more than 50% in the average unit price over the same period a year earlier.
  • A four-year protocol between the European Union and Mauritania provides the EU with fishing opportunities for shrimp, demersal fish, tuna, and small pelagic fish. The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement allows EU vessels to take up to 281.500 tonnes a year. In addition to catches paid for by the European fleet, the EU will dedicate EUR 59,1 million per year to the partnership.
  • Turkey is a major player in the Mediterranean and Black seas fisheries and aquaculture. Turkey’s exports of seabass, seabream, and trout, which are mostly farmed, to the EU compete with EU-produced fish and enter the EU market at prices much lower than the EU’s own products.
  • In France, retail prices of fresh mussel are the highest among the five Member States surveyed. In Spain, the most important market for hake in the EU, larger sizes of hake are preferred. Prices of European hake larger than 2 kg were relatively stable in the period observed and exhibited a decreasing trend. Marine fuel in fish harbours in France, Italy and Spain has averaged between 48 and 51 cents/litre in July 2015. It confirms the decrease observed in the past six months.
