Virtual water trade is increasingly recognized as a useful metaphor for thinking about freshwater resources in an international context. Its legitimacy in terms of economic theory has been questioned by a number of authors, however. In this article I develop new theoretical results that place the virtual water concept on...
The present study employs a cointegration method and error correction model to analyze the long-run relationship and short-run adjustment of aggregated seafood import demand function for selected Caribbean countries. The results show that there exists a long-term equilibrium relationship between Caribbean seafood import and related factors. Import demand elasticity is...
This study represents an attempt to estimate the effects of SPS measures in terms of trade elasticity of regulations
and competitiveness of exports. In spite of the generalized acknowledgment of growing liberalization of trade
between countries, there are still numerous obstacles to trade, more of the non-tariff type. This study...
Bluefin tuna (BFT) stocks in both the Western and Eastern Atlantic are in

fishing in the Eastern Atlantic. The species qualifies for a Convention on
Following a ban to export seafood products to EU in 2004, the Philippines
started a very active process of compliancy with European Food Law,

capable of ensuring the required level of food safety in 2006, after an

The effects of exchange rates and risk on U.S. codfish imports from Canada, China, Norway and Iceland are
examined in the context of the Armington framework. The exchange rate volatility is measured by the generalized
autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (GARCH) method. The nonstationarities of time-series data are
explicitly taken into account...
The past twenty years has seen the offshore outsourcing of post-harvest
fish processing gain unprecedented momentum. The growth in offshore
processing is a further stage in an increasingly globalised fisheries value
chain. Raw material is head and gutted, then frozen, and transported to
processing sites in Asia (especially China). The...
Japan has been the biggest export market of aquatic products of China for many years. The export of aquatic products to Japan reached more than 700,000 ton and $ 3 billion in 2007. The influence to the export market caused by the sweeping economic crisis will affect the benefits of...
