On Mercabarna, in December, frozen bottomfish species volumes increased by almost 32 tonnes and fresh ones declined by 143 tonnes. The most important increases were those in fresh import longline hake, fresh skate, Namibian and Gran Sol angler, frozen sole and fresh wild seabass. The most significant drops were those in fresh wild seabream, fresh national angler and fresh national sea trout.

On the wholesale market of Mercamadrid, the trend was the same. Incoming volumes of frozen products rose by 220 tonnes. Those of fresh bottomfish species declined by 11 tonnes. The most important increases were registered in fresh and frozen cod, frozen sole, fresh angler tail, frozen hake, frozen hake fillets, fresh conger, frozen panga fillet and salted cod. The most significant drops were those in fresh Chilean hake, fresh Gran Sol hake, fresh sole, fresh sea trout and fresh cod.

Spain

On Mercabarna, in December, the most important increases in prices were registered in fresh wild seabream, fresh angler, fresh kingclip, fresh wild seabream, fresh megrim, fresh turbot, fresh grouper and fresh croaker. These drops were mainly a consequence of the drop in supplies. The most significant drops were those in fresh skate, frozen whole hake, frozen hake fillets and frozen saithe.

On the wholesale market of Mercamadrid, prices of frozen species remained stable. Regarding fresh species, prices have increased in most species, and there were no drops. The most important rises wwere registered in seabream, angler tails, longline hake, hake cheeks, angler and sea trout.
