Prices for super-prime fishmeal touched USD 2,000/t FOB as the industry awaits the first data from a second survey carried out by Peru’s marine research institute, known as Imarpe, an industry source said.

Another source said super-prime trades have been carried out for more than USD 1,900/t.

The key number the industry is waiting to hear is the quantity of biomass in the sea. Imarpe identified a biomass of 4.4 million metric tons in its first survey earlier in 2016, prompting the decision to delay the season. The second survey needs a reading of over 5m tons for the season to begin, the institute said at the time.
