The most important species in this subsector was giant squid (USD 405.6 million), whose sales grew by 24.7 percent and represented 38.3 percent of the total value of exports of non-traditional products. Its most important presentation was frozen, with USD 391.4 million, but it was also shipped in residual and canned flour.

Other important species were dolphinfish (USD 95.2 million), anchovy (USD 58.3 million), mackerel (USD 32.9 million), tuna (USD 29.9 million) and hake (USD 29.3 million), among others
