Big fish games are booming in Spain and the price of salmon is going up too.
The price of a head of salmon in Spain has gone up over 20% this year, to an average of €2,400 ($2,737).
That’s nearly double the €900 ($1,037) that a similar fish for sale fish sold for last year.
According to the Spanish government, the fish for sell fish market has doubled in size every year since 2004, with the price per head rising from €1,400 to €2.5k.
And for the first time, fish sold in spaniards are being priced below the cost of production.
Last year, a fish for buy fish sold at €3,800 per head, with prices dropping to €1.5K ($1.7K).
But that’s still cheaper than the fish sold to consumers for just €2K ($2.3K).
The price per kilogram of fish has increased by over 50% over the past five years, according to the government.
And the fish has been priced higher because the industry has had to cut prices.
The market has been plagued by a glut of cheap fish and poor conditions at salmon farms, where there’s no protection for the animals.
The Spanish government recently announced a new set of regulations to address the situation.
They’re set to go into effect on April 1, 2018.
But some fish experts worry that the new regulations won’t do much to change prices.
The new regulations will mean that producers will be able to produce more fish and increase the price for consumers.
And that’s something fish growers have already begun to notice.
