Presenting state-of-the-art research on the economics of producing and marketing aquacultural products, this volume addresses critical issues concerning profitability, market acceptance, and economic modeling of various aquacultural products. Research approaches range from firm-level bioeconomic modelling to market-level econometric modelling of industry growth and product substitution. The studies highlight the institutional structures and public policy issues that will shape growth and development of aquaculture into the twenty-first century, including trade policies, food safety, and environmental quality.
