In the Mai Po region of Hong Kong, the Worldwide Fund for Nature has developed environmentally sustainable practices for fish farming, the eco-pond. The ecological balance is threatened by unsustainable fishing. By surveying 450 consumers we determined that middle income respondents are the best market for eco-fish at a 30-40% price premium. The net profit is enough incentive for fishers to adopt the eco-pond. Ultimately, we determined the potential market for eco-fish in Hong Kong contains approximately one million households.
