In the first two months of the year, Peru exported Patagonian toothfish for USD 471,592, a figure that indicates a fall of 43 per cent  compared to the same period of 2018 (USD 829,329), due to a lower presence of this resource, according to the management of Services and Extractive Industries of the Association of Exporters (ADEX).



The only destination was the United States, where the fish was shipped by air and entered through the airports of Los Angeles, Miami and Seattle in the form of fresh or refrigerated.

According to data from the Adex Data Trade Intelligence System, Peru exported 22,000 tons of Patagonian toothfish (or Chilean seabass) in the mentioned period, compared to 33,000 tons in the first two months of 2018, which represents a contraction of 31.5 per cent.

It should be noted that in January of this year the Ministry of Production (Produce) set a fishing quota of 161 tons for Patagonian toothfish for 2019, only 6 tons more than in 2018 (155 tons). However, this limit could be modified if the Institute of the Sea of ​​Peru (Imarpe) determines a greater availability of the resource.

Based on average global landings of Patagonian toothfish from 2012-2016 and using the most recent MSC-certified fisheries from 2013-2017, the sustainability breakdown of Patagonian toothfish is:

  • ~70% of Patagonian toothfish is MSC-certified (~50% from French-flagged vessels, ~25% from Australian flagged-vessels, ~15% from U.K. flagged vessels, and ~10% from Falkland Island-flagged vessels)
  • The leading country flag of vessels for landings include: ~30% France, ~20% Argentina, ~20% Australia, ~10% Korea, and ~5% U.K. and Falkland Islands each)
  • Global landings of Patagonian toothfish have increased ~10% in 2016 compared to 2012

The companies that exported this hydrobiological product the most are Agtromarina del Peru S.A.C., Peruvian Seabass S.A.C., Fishing Company Ocean Fish S.A.C. and Armavi S.A.C.

ADEX also reported that last year Peru exported Patagonian toothfish for USD 2,856,000 million, 34,3 per cent less than the 2017 figure of USD 4,397,000. Shipments of this species grew steadily until 2017.
