In the 1st quarter 2019

Aviculture registered a year-on-year increase, while the landed catch dropped in value and rose in volume.

In the first three months of 2019 the egg production stood at 4.4 million units, increasing by 9.3% year-on-year. Likewise, the poultry meat totalled 759.8 tonnes, up by 2.8% compared to the same period of 2018.

Between January and March 2019, the weight of the slaughtered livestock dropped by 0.2% year-on-year.

Compared to the same period of last year, the data on landed catch show a 11.4% increase in volume in the first three months of 2019 and a 4.6% decrease in first sale receipts.

Black scabbardfish had a share of 79.5% of the landed catch and grew 35.1% in volume and 20.3% in first sale receipts. This increase was not enough to offset the pronounced drop in the value of tuna and tuna-like species which declined by 86.7% year-on year.

The global average price (first sale), excluding the landed catch for own consumption, for the reference period was € 3.33 (€ 3.88 for the same period of 2018), with the same indicator for tuna and tuna-like species reaching € 6.41 (€ 5.36 € in the first quarter of 2018). In the case of  black scabbardfish the mean price was 3.55 € (3.99 € in the first three months of 2018).
