Prices

Spain

On Mercabarna, in February, prices of turbot rose by EUR 0.13/kg due to a drop in supplies and those of seabrea, croaker and seabass declined because of a lower demand.

Average prices declined in February in the case of medium-sized and large seabream, and so did those of medium-sized seabass due to a lower demand. Those of large and small megrim also dropped due to the rise in supplies. That of small seabass increased due to the decline in supplies.
