Abstract or Summary
  • The fish market in Finland has changed dramatically since the removal of trade barriers to the importation of fresh salmon in 1993. Imported salmon has rapidly captured markets from domestically produced salmon trout. Another clear trend has been increased concentration at the wholesale and retail level, which in turn has increased the possibility to exploit market power for those firms with key locations along the value chain. In this paper we use price data and apply co-integration techniques to investigate the relationship between salmon and salmon trout at different points along the fish marketing chain. It can be concluded that salmon and salmon trout are substitutes in the fresh fish market and that the value chains for both fish species are competitive from the producer to wholesaler level. In addition, the role of wholesalers is central in the salmon trout value chain.
