Aquaculture in Spain provides data from the sector. Post-pandemic and climate change, among the triggers of the perfect storm that threatens a sector of more than 500 million euros. In addition, all the necessary elements to produce aquatic species have been addressed in respect of the past year, some with never seen increases.

All countries have seen their productive capacity Mermaid for containment of the coronavirus. The rear rebound has also strained supply chains. Aquaculture inputs have been addressed in addition to transport. To this end, the effects on the productivity of raw materials caused by climate accidents related to the climate change, like the torrential rains in Spain or the extreme heat wave in Canada and the United States, in the summer of 2021.

Everything's up and going up.
Creating marine and fluvial aquatic species with the parameters of excellence in which the Spanish aquaculture sector is framed involves the consumption of the elements necessary for the development and marketing of fish, seafood and algae. Them essential consumables to be able to dispose of these foods have experienced rises as the rest of production costs. Resumen de Libros

In addition to the rise of 2021, the distortions in the productive capacities and the transport predict that the growth of the costs will continue in 2022. This is seen by entities such as the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. A rise that reaches a productive sector with the margins very adjusted after the pandemic and the increases of this year. On average, supposes a extra expenditure of 45-50 cts/kg impacted on production costs.

To produce their fish and seafood, the companies of Spanish aquaculture sector They need:

    • +5% to 10% (estimated 2022)

Events such as the pandemic have revealed the need for a resistant and healthy food sector. This is reflected in the European directives regulating food farming. In order to meet food needs, it is essential that food companies be efficient and cost-effective. Today they have to face generalized increase of the elements necessary for their activity without commercial margin to assume them.
