Abstract: Production of gilthead seabream and European seabass is the second most important aquaculture industry in the European Union. During the last 10 years, the industry has experienced a process of industry concentration with the aim to overcome efficiency and profitability issues. However, the economic performance of the companies is still in general rather poor. The present work analyses the economic performance of EU seabream and seabass firms in the period 2008-2016. The work is the first study to analyse firms’ profitability in the EU as a whole, by country and company size, using economic and financial data extracted from firms’ annual accounts. Based on the results, the study discusses the improvement of production and business profitability in recent years and the different factors that may have caused it, as well as the challenges and threats that seabream and seabass firms will have to face in order to achieve economic sustainability.
