From this Friday the Spanish fleet will not be able to fish more albacore (Thunnus alalunga) in the Atlantic Ocean due to exhaustion of its fishing quota.
The General Direction of Fisheries Management estimated that by October 13 the fleet will have exhausted 100 per cent of the estimated albacore quota for the set of Spanish ships: 14,196,452 kilos.

For the Basque fishermen, the albacore campaign closes "with a satisfactory statement", according to the secretary of the Federation of Associations of Gipuzkoa, Miren Garmendia, because of the good catch of the purse seine and trolling line fleets, and the good quotation price, at an average of EUR 4 per kilo.

The fact that Basque vessels were not forced to move far from the coast to capture the resource has also contributed to the coastal profitability. In fact, they did not have to make long journeys to Ireland, as in other years, which has meant significant fuel savings, Diario Vasco reported.

In Asturias, meanwhile, 662,726.30 kilos of tuna were auctioned in the Gijón market, around 24,000 kilos more than in 2016. Despite this increase in sales, turnover was slightly lower, at EUR 2.78 million , compared to EUR 2.87 million in 2016.

According to La Nueva España, this drop in turnover was due to fewer ships entering El Musel, where there are usually larger albacore specimens because of the presence of French and Irish trawlers near Spanish waters. However, this year's turnover has been good compared to the average of the last four seasons, which was EUR 2.6 million.

Albacore-longfinned tuna season usually lasts until the end of October, but this year it ends in the middle of the month owing to the good catches.
