Although the 2019 Argentinean illex season opened with good yields, since week 5 a downward trend has been observed in catches, which have reached their lowest level over the last few days.

According to sources in the sector, production has fallen from initial 34.6 tonnes/day down to 2 tonnes/day per vessel, so that it appears to be a fact that the Argentinean illex campaign will not give good results.

As far as sizes are concerned, double S and S predominate.
