IIN BRIEF - Peru’s anchovy quota is nearly half fulfilled, but El Niño begins to affect subsequent fishing

Monday, December 04, 2023

Peru is one month into its second anchovy fishing season. As of November 20, a total of 802,346 tons had been caught in the central and northern regions, accounting for 48% of the total quota (1.68 million tons). Industry insiders remain cautiously optimistic about the remaining 52% quota.

Only 27 days into the fishing season, a warm "Kelvin wave" appeared in the fishing area, affecting the normal operations of fishing vessels.

The Peruvian National Marine and Hydrological Service (ENFEN) stated that the intensity of El Niño events has decreased recently, but it still has a certain impact. As summer approaches, changing ocean conditions are causing industry insiders to worry about remaining quotas. In addition to the Kelvin wave problem, rising seawater salinity in Peruvian waters has also slowed down fishing progress.

In Peru, fishmeal prices remain relatively high, while fish oil prices, which had hit record highs earlier this year, edged further higher due to low production. Currently, the price of CIF China's special-grade fishmeal is US$2,150/ton, the asking price of high-quality fishmeal is US$2,100/ton, and the price of standard-grade fishmeal is US$1,820/ton. Fish oil prices have reached new highs, with recent trade prices at $9,600/ton.

IN BRIEF - Spanish Sardine Fishing Ends with Highest Catch in Recent Years

Monday, December 04, 2023

The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food has announced the closure of the sardine fishing campaign, effective from 00:00, Friday 01 December 2023, for the purse seine fleet in the Gulf of Cadiz and the Northwest Cantabrian fleets using highly selective sardine-directed gear, such as “racú” and “piobardeira.” The campaign concludes with a final quota of 22,582 tonnes, the highest in recent years.

Utilising, for the first time, an optimisation mechanism, the fleet was allowed to fish until the last authorised day. The Xeito fleet can continue fishing against its quota until exhaustion, following the provisions of Order APM/605/2018, of June 1, which establishes a management and recovery plan for sardines in the Iberian waters (8c and 9a) of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea.

The entire sardine-dedicated fleet successfully completed the authorised fishing period, thanks to the optimisation mechanism implemented since October 15. This mechanism maximised efficiency in quota utilisation by distributing the remaining unconsumed quotas to the entire fleet.[...]

Monday, December 04, 2023

Norway and the EU have signed a new seafood deal which is expected to lead to an increase in salmon trade.

Much of the deal simply confirms a continuation of the current arrangement, but the big winners are likely to be Norway’s salmon farmers.

Norway’s new Fisheries Minister Cecilie Myrseth said that the EU remains her country’s most important market for seafood, adding that several duty free quotas for important products would continue but the new agreement would also open new quotas for processed and smoked salmon and frozen shelled prawns.
