The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) recently issued a new report on fish exports from Brazil, which saw a 49% increase in revenue from January to September 2022 compared to the same period in 2021.

In the 3rd quarter, revenue dropped by 17%. According to Empraba’s bulletin, the downward movement can be explained by the lower supply of tilapia fillets in the domestic market, reducing the availability of foreign sales. Frozen fillets remain the most exported product, despite a 9% drop from the previous year.
