Author(s): Shyam S Salim, Athira NR and Lowrane Stanley

Abstract: The fish price variations leads to issues related to fish availability, accessibility and affordability. The price variations are affecting all stages of transactions and attributed to the uncertainty in fish production, distribution and consumption. The present study portrays the dynamics of fish price behaviour across the different species and markets and identifies the need for implementing a Fish Market Price Information System (FMPIS). The study was based on the primary data of fish prices were collected from the 25 highly diversified fish markets including landing centres, retail and wholesale markets across the coastal states of Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Telangana during the period Jan 2018 – June 2020. The results depicts that the markets of Kerala indicates that Nadakkav, Kavanad and Chambakkara shows the high probability of retention at 0.542, 0.590 and 0.577 respectively. Sabzimandi (0.899) show the highest probability of retention of fish prices in Telangana followed by Kashmirgadda (0.754) and Karimnagar (0.827). The Colaba market (0.858), Desaiganj (0.680) and Umred (0.627) shows the high probability of retention in fish prices in Maharashtra and in Andhra Pradesh the markets Markapuram (0.807), Guntur (0.707) and Baptla (0.535) has the high probability of retention. The results also point outs that sardine, mackerel, tilapia, pearl spot catla, rohu and Asian sea bass are the most consuming fish species there exists a very clear cut demand and supply pattern for these fish species. The price of Tilapia are found to be co integrated in the markets and the demand for Tilapia is steadily increasing over Pearl spot, irrespective of the geographic vicinities.
