Captures of Spanish Northern Shortfin Squid fell in W46 Due to Bad Weather

Published Nov 16, 2022
The Northern Shortfin Squid season has recently begun in northern Spain, from Galicia to the Basque Country. The season started with normal volumes and a fair price of USD 1.40/kg FOB Vigo for fresh squid (8–10 pieces/kg) at local auctions. However, squid prices in W46 increased due to low captured volumes caused by extreme weather conditions and tougher sea conditions on the northern coast of Spain, with the price reaching USD 1.50/kg FOB Vigo. The season will last until March 2023, and fishing boats will continue to catch squid in the coming months.
