In October, the main variations in prices on Mercabarna, compared with September, were the increases registered in frozen prawn (camarón) and frozen cooked prawn (gamba), due to a higher demand. There was a drop in fresh shrimp, due to a rise in supplies. To a lesser extent, there was a drop in prices of frozen white prawn and frozen cooked shrimp, following a lower demand. Those of frozen red prawn and fresh prawn have increased, as a consequence of a drop in supplies.

On Mercamadrid, in October, prices remained stable in all species, compared with the previous month.
