More sardines for Brazil

This article was originally published in Foodnews

BRAZIL is seeing a recovery in its sardine stocks, reports Infofish. From 17 000 tonnes in 2003, sardine catches off the coasts of Brazil rose to 53 000 tonnes in 2004, with strong figures continuing for the next few years. Landings totalled 55 000 tonnes in 2007 and 78 000 tonnes in 2008, and are expected to reach 90 000 tonnes this year. The growth in landings has helped the Brazilian sardine processing industry: exports in March 2009 grew 20% in volume and 25% in value to 140 tonnes and US$437 820, respectively.
