Uruguay: Decreasing fish exports to Europe and Africa

Uruguayan fisheries are facing a dark future after the poor performance in the last two years of the country returns. The fishing industry is struggling to recover markets, and during 2014, it will have to cope with the duty benefit limitations to enter the European market.
Until about 24 months ago, the fishery resources of the country were mainly going to Europe, which used to buy most of the hake caught, and Africa, where whitemouth croaker and stripped weakfish were sent. However, in 2012, there was a fall in shipments to the European market, and in recent months, seafood exports to African territory also decreased.
Until October 2013, Nigeria was the main buyer of whitemouth croaker and imported 70 per cent of the production of this species. Nevertheless, from that date, the Nigerian government decided to close the import market for fish.
According to the head of the National Directorate of Aquatic Resources (Dinara), Daniel Gilardoni, Nigeria bought fish for USD 1,200 million annually in different parts of the world, newspaper El Pais reported.
