Abstract or Summary
  • The market for fish products in Finland has changed markedly since the removal of trade barriers after the country's accession to the EU in 1995. Further the transition from a producer to a consumer-oriented society has created numerous new demands for food products. New dietary trends, such as low fat intake, and food safety, as well as interest in the ecological aspects of food also apply to fish products. The outlook for the entire production chain needs to be clarified to enable producers to react to new consumer demands. Topical information is useful for fisheries administration and policy planning too. The general idea of this study is to analyse consumers' and producers' opinions regarding fish products and the production environment simultaneously. A barometer survey aims to collect data that are reliable and comparable in the long term. Follow-up data have been collected through computer-based phone interviews once a year since 2000. Samples comprise 2000 consumers and 350 enterprises countrywide. Enterprises are divided into fishing, aquaculture, processing and trade (see also abstract: Ahvonen & Honkanen). The latest data, collected in February 2002, show that perceptions of fish are very favourable. Fish is considered a high-quality, safe and ecologically produced food. Finns think that the selection of fish products will increase in the near future and that the supply of new domestic cultured fish species will expand.
