The decrease in volume was mainly driven by the decline in the catch of tuna and tuna-like species (-9.1% in volume and -30.0% in the first sales receipts), which nonetheless, was the most abundant species during 2018.

The first sale average price of the landed catch was EUR 2.50 (EUR 2.71 in 2017).
