Markets in Europe for Selected Aquaculture Species: Salmon, Trout, Seabass, Seabream.

The FAO's Globefish Research Program has begun a series of publications, the first of which is Markets in Europe for Selected Aquaculture Species: Saknon, Trout, Seabass, Seabream", by Susan A. Shaw and Adrienne Curry. The authors here examine the current European markets for these species and the prospects to 1993 for such nations as Belgium, the Netherlands, West Germany (FRG), France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Salmon consumption (fresh and frozen), they note, grew rapidly (more than 200 percent) between 1980 and 1997 in all surveyed nations (and in Spain alone by 800 percent). Rainbow trout showed similar increases. Seabass and seabream supplies played only a marginal role in total fish supply to European countries, but interest in developing the culture industry for those species is regarded as strong; they do bring premium prices, particularly in Italy. The 121-page paperbound issue, Globefish Research Programme Vol. 1, costs US$40 and is available from Globefish, FIIU, FAO, Via delle Terme di Caracalla, 0100, Roma, Italy; or, from INFOFISH, Wisman Pkns (9th Floor), Jalan Raja Laut, P.O. Box 10899, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
