Prices

Spain

On Spanish first-sale markets, the prices of Argentine prawn, Penaeus vannamei and Penaeus monodon remained stable, compared with previous offers. We must consider that in the coming weeks there will be a devaluation of the EUR –compared with the USD- which may mean some rises in prices of exports.
