Cox’s Bazar fish market: Bangladesh Fisheries Sector Review



Poseidon has very broad experience of fisheries and aquaculture economics, covering the whole value chain i.e. input services, catching/production, processing, and marketing. Projects relating to specific products or investments focus on costs and earnings studies, value chain studies, market assessments and strategy development, trade, feasibility studies and business plans, investment appraisal (of both private sector investments, and public sector ones such as in fishing harbours), and evaluation. We also use our economics expertise at a more macro level to inform fisheries/aquaculture policy and management in many countries, for example advising on fisheries licence fees based on modelling of vessel profitability, and on the economic impacts and benefits of different policy and management options.
