Abstract or Summary
  • The overall aim of this research project is to determine the socioeconomic impact of a live tilapia gathering and distribution centre on rural and peri-urban fish farmers. The study area is established in the fringes between urban and rural areas of Veracruz City, in Mexico. Previously, both the national and regional initiatives called Tilapia System Product and Tilapia Veracruz System Product detected the need of strengthening the commercial link in the tilapia productive chain by the creation of a live tilapia collect and distribution centre. Hypothetically, establishing live product among the consumers' preferences will not only increase their protein intake, but will improve also small-scale tilapia farmers' economy. The methodological approach will include marketing studies, a business plan, a financial analysis and pilot tests. Potentially, the main benefit of this research will be the social welfare that tilapia farmers of Veracruz will gain by determining a marketing system, specifically designed to meet their needs, while ensuring the efficiency of the commercial link within the tilapia productive chain. Furthermore, expected findings might help the industry by encouraging ethical consumerism of farm-raised tilapia while promoting local production.
