Global markets
 
FOB prices of Peruvian prime-grade fishmeal stayed around US$1,600/tonnes.
 
Prices stayed stable as inventories fishmeal fell to around 2,000 tonnes.
 
 
Market analysis
 
Feed millers cut the production of aqua feed with demand dropping at a fast rate amid falling weather temperatures. Sales of fishmeal slowed as a result, compelling traders to slash prices further in efforts to entice buyers.
 
Price quotes for prime-grade products were lower in the range of RMB11,800-12,000/tonne.
 
 
Market forecast
 
The market will be closed for week during early October as China is on holidays. After the long break, demand for fishmeal is expected to weaken as a faster pace with aquaculture production shrinking rapidly.
