The Valencian community is expected to produce around 11,800 tonnes of seabream and seabass this year, which is 33 per cent of the national total (35,360 tonnes), according to the Association of Marine Production in Spain (Apromar). 
 
The Annual Report of Marine Fish Aquaculture 2010 by Apromar clarified that this figure represents an increase from the 10,900 tonnes produced in 2009, when the region contributed to 29 per cent of the Spanish total. 
 
According to the report, the Region of Murcia will once again be the second largest producer of seabream and seabass in Spain this year, with 23 per cent of the total at 8,290 tonnes.
 
Apromar also estimates that this year, the total production of both species will fall by roughly 5.8 per cent, after reaching 37,530 tonnes in 2009. 
 
With regards to seabream production, in 2010 it could reach 23,070 tonnes, which is 2.6 per cent less than in 2009 (23,690 tonnes). 
 
Whilst seabass production is expected to reach 12,290 tonnes, 11.2 per cent less than in 2009 (13,840 tonnes). 
 
On the other hand, the Apromar report specifies that this year, 8420 tonnes of turbot will be harvested, 1.2 per cent higher than that recorded in 2009 (8,320 tonnes). 
 
The Association also anticipates that Spain will produce 510 tonnes of eel, the same amount as last year, 3180 tonnes of croacker and 250 tonnes of Snapper. 
 
Apromar explained how marine fish breeding grew by 8.3 per cent in 2008 to 43,705 tonnes and increased by 10.8 per cent in 2009, reaching 48,440 tonnes. 
 
But considering the potential of the aquaculture industry, this growth rate is "relatively low and for the second consecutive year, and has exposed a disturbing trend of a slow-down in growth within the sector." 
 
They also anticipate that this year "the decrease in production by 0.9 per cent will result in production reaching no more than 48,000 tonnes." 
 
Apromar notes that there are 124 facilities in the country which specialise in the breeding, fattening and reproduction of these species, both in tanks or ponds on land, as well as cages in the sea. 
 
Last year, the country had 16 breeding facilities operating in the commercial reproduction of marine species. Of that total, 15 are dedicated to the reproduction of fish and 1 for crustaceans. 
 
The 16 plants produced 69.3 million fry of major fish species and 6.4 million post-larvae shrimp.
