We have been watching for years how the price of octopus does not stop moving. This species is subject to constant changes in the capture processes that occur especially on the coasts of Morocco and Mauritania. Due to a large unexpected demand in countries with high purchasing power, such as the United States, for example, and the reduction in catches, prices were close to 13 euros per kilo in 2018 and 2019. In 2020, we noted some stability, partly as a consequence of the declaration of the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide; however, for the last quarter, prices plummeted to levels close to 5 euros per kilo. In this year 2021 we are observing how the price has recovered to levels of previous years, which suggests that the catch that was made in the winter months was not enough for the expected demand.
