May 2018
Increases in value and volume: First sales grew in Denmark, Estonia, Norway, and Sweden over a year earlier. The increase in volume terms was particularly high for Sweden, due to herring, the most important species landed, which recorded a rise by 30% in value and by 43% in volume. First-sales value in Denmark increased for common sole and Northern shrimp, whereas volume grew for blue mussel and European flounder.

Decreases in value and volume: Drops were registered in Belgium, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and the UK. The decreases were particularly high in Belgium, due largely to lower supplies of flatfish species. Poland experienced a strong decrease in first sales mainly because of lower catches of groundfish and small pelagics.
In Sweden,
first sales grew strongly in both value (+36%) and volume (+97%) during January–May 2018. The positive trends were due to herring, which recorded increases of catch by 156%. Other species like Norway lobster and sprat contributed to a lesser extent. In May 2018, higher first-sales value of Northern shrimp and herring contributed to the continuation of the overall increases. Average prices of all the top species decreased by 17%. Of those species herring’s average price decreased by 10%
(0,28 EUR/kg).
