What are FAO areas and how do they affect fisheries?

Our seas are divided into 19 fishing areas, delimited by the FAO (FAO is a written abbreviation for Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) and defined by a specific numbering system. We are thus able to classify all products caught in the sea according to the fishing sector to which they belong, which greatly facilitates the development of statistics on fisheries, stock control and key decision making in the global industry of fish and seafood.

The increase in sales in the USA boosts Discefa’s revenues, although the current price of octopus poses a challenge.

The increase in demand for frozen octopus products in the USA and Canada has been the main driver of Discefa’s sales during 2017. The firm expects this upward trend to continue this year and forecasts an increase in turnover of 8-10% and 30% in the US market. In the specific case of the commercial line of frozen cooked octopus, it can be seen that growth of 55.7% is maintained compared to 2016. (more…)
