Our team aimed to assess and analyze the urban market for aquaculture products since these products were not well-commercialized in the metropolitan area of Costa Rica. We accomplished this by conducting surveys of aquaculture producers, wholesalers, market managers and consumers of fish products. Our main deliverables included data describing the volumes and prices of fish sold, demand for fish species, locations of purchase, consumer demographics and current advertisement techniques as well as recommendations for developing the commercialization of aquaculture products.
