Cost, competition and employment along farmed fish value chains in Nigeria

In this brief we summarize our findings from a value chain survey of relevant stakeholders in Nigeria to better understand the aquaculture industries’ post-production cost composition, market competition environment, and employment more fully. Furthermore, we present findings related to the demand forsafety certified fish. Our findings show that costs regarding fish transportation are disproportionally high, market competition is imperfect, labor employment differs substantially among services (processing, retailers, wholesalers) and regions, and demand for seafood safety certification is significant.
