    2022 Was a Boom Year For Falklands Squid and Finfish Fleets

    The name LILIBET was proposed by Aimée, a pupil at Stanley Infant Junior School and Camp Education (Pic@LarusDom)

    Fisheries authorities in the Falkland Islands have said that 2022 was a bumper year for the squid and hake fishing fleets licenced by the territory. Sixteen ships caught a remarkable 101,166 tonnes of loligo squid; a catch that was exceeded only in 1989 when 118,120 tonnes were landed, although that record catch was achieved by almost three times as many ships.
