Cadiz closed againThis article was originally published in Foodnews
THE Spanish Gulf of Cadiz anchovy fishery is to be closed again on 1 September to preserve the quotas for 2013. The fishery was closed for three days on 15 August after it exhausted its quota, but trading allowances with Portugal allowed it to re-open until the end of August. The head of the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment (MAGRAMA) explained that closures now will allow the fishery to remain open throughout the next season, rather than closing half way through. The lobster and monkfish fisheries were closed at the beginning of August.
