Central Fish Market

Procedures

According to fisheries regulation, fish caught by local fishermen has to be sold through the Wholesale Fishmarket in Valletta. Catches are sold by public auction through a middleman to retailers and fish hawkers. All dealers in fish are registered with the Fisheries Department.

Statistics

Statistical data for fish landings is collected through the daily returns of sales submitted by middlemen at the Wholesale Fishmarket in Valletta.

The data collected in the Wholesale Market is:

  • date,
  • fisherman identification,
  • voucher number,
  • retailer name,
  • licence number of the retailer,
  • for each species: species name, number of boxes, weights and price.

Statistics on landings and fishing effort are also being collected through a port sampling scheme for vessels under 10 metres in length. A log-book scheme for vessels over 10 metres will be introduced in the near future.

Cratage

In Maltese organised markets cratage service for products is supplied by Malta Fish Crates. There are 2 sizes of approved crates (photos below). The system works on a deposit for the crates and a service charge for its use. For further information please contact Koperattiva Nazzjonali tas-Sajd.
