Eastern Black Sea Exporters Association (DKIB) Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors Ahmet Hamdi Gurdogan said that 2 thousand tons of anchovies were exported from Turkiye in 10 months.
Stating that $11 million 168 thousand of income was obtained from the foreign sales in question, Gurdogan stated that this figure means a 22% increase compared to the same period of the previous year.
Gurdogan emphasized that anchovy found buyers in 25 countries this period, “France, Belgium and Germany were the three countries with the most exports. In this period, $4 million 7 thousand 179 of anchovies were sold to France, $ 3 million 507 thousand 586 to Belgium, and $958 thousand 133 to Germany.”
Noting that anchovies were exported to Uzbekistan, Lebanon, Iraq, Moldova, Malaysia and Somalia in this period, unlike the same period last year, Gurdogan said that it is important to implement practices that will enable anchovies to reach large sizes and become abundant in order to further increase the export potential.
Gurdogan said that they believe that exports will increase further in the coming days as the weather cools and anchovies become abundant.
