Tridge summary

The Black Sea fishing season has been notably successful, leading to satisfaction among fishermen and consumers due to the plentiful catch and resulting lower prices for fish compared to other meats. With the onset of a hunting ban on April 15, targeting species like anchovy, horse mackerel, whiting, and red mullet will cease, shifting focus to other fish such as salmon, trout, sea bass, sea bream, and freshwater varieties. Atıf Malkoç, President of the Samsun Region Fisheries Cooperatives Association, highlighted the positive season and plans to target sprats post-ban, a fish primarily used for flour and oil and exported. The season's success is attributed to the abundance of certain fish species and the positive effects of fishing bans on both market prices and fish sizes.
