Argentina and Uruguay have decided to ban hake fishery in a specific part of the Common Fishery Area through the end of March 2017, as well as to set a quota of 50,000 tonnes for 2017.

The EU ministries of Fishery have agreed to distribute the fishing possibilities for the community fishery in Spain in 2017, including a reduction of 1.4% in southern fishery, to 6,731 tonnes.

The Peruvian Institute of the Sea has set a breeding ban on hake (Merluccius gayi peruanus) through 30 June 2017 in the area between the northern tip of Peruvian maritime domain and the 07°00’ southern latitude.

On Mercabarna, in December 2016, the most significant increases were those in fresh pollock and fresh national longline hake, compared with the previous month, and due to a higher demand. Those frozen small sea trout also rose due to a drop in supplies. The most important drops were registered in frozen cod, Namibian angler and fresh Gran Sol, due to higher supplies. Those of fresh wild seabass also dropped due to the lower demand.

On Mercamadrid, in December, prices of frozen species remained stable, compared with the previous month. Regarding fresh species, the most important increases in percentages were those in seabream and small sea trout. The most important drops were those in large megrim, Chilean hake and longline-caught small hake.
