The climatic conditions predicted what has been reported by the coastal fishing sector in the current octopus season: the production registers a decrease of 55 percent in volume, since only in the first week were obtained 115.3 tons of the mollusk, when 257.6 tons had been reached in the same period last year.

According to the first report on the volume and value of octopus production, in live weight landed by the Fisheries offices, within the 2019 octopus season of the National Aquaculture and Fisheries Commission (Conapesca), from 1 to 4 In August, 115.37 tonnesof Mayan octopus have already been captured on the Campeche coast.

Conapesca explained that in the fishing community of Isla Arena, within that period 59,29 tonnes of the mollusk have been reported, which represents an economic value of MXN 3,417,979 (USD 175,409)

By volume, the town of Seybaplaya occupied the second place, with 30,56 tonnes, with a commercial value of MXN1,222,344 (USD 62,738); followed by Champoton with 20,77 tonnes, with a commercial value of MXN 741,272 (USD 38,048)

Smaller catches were recorded by the fishing community of Campeche, with just four 4.27 tonnes worth MXN 198,979 (USD 10,213), and Sabancuy with 452.50 kilograms, with a value of MXN 16,537 (USD 849).

In the document, it is recognized that the total catch in these fishing regions fell by 55 percent over last year, since in that same period of 2018, 257,64 tonnes had been caught.

As for the value of production, according to the Conapesca report, it also represents a decrease of 59 percent, since MXN 13,529,919 (USD 694,215) were generated by more than 257.6 tonnes in that same period, while in 2019 the figure barely reaches MXN 5,597,113 (USD 287,184).

Currently, the average price on the beach per kilogram of Mayan octopus is MXN 49 (USD 2.51).

According to Conapesca, the figures reflected in the current capture season are due to the fact that around 60 percent of the coastal fleet dedicated to octopus fishing is not going out to sea, as fishermen are very cautious in the first days of the activity.
