    A study on fresh fish marketing and prices in Al Quseir region 1982
    Also available in:

    The low income of fishermen in Al Quseir region as a result of the prevailing pricing and marketing policies is considered the primary factor behind the decreasing number of fishermen. This study aims at proposing pricing and marketing policies that aim to lessen the gap between the fisherman's income and his counterpart in other sectors. The study analyzes the present fish marketing and pricing system to determine the shortcomings and weaknesses and to propose remedial solutions. Moreover, it s tudies the consumers' preferences in the area, and uses them as guidelines for drawing the proposed policies, besides using the opportunity cost approach to determine the suitable income for the fishermen. Hence, the proposed policies consider the interest of both producer and consumer.

    Al Quseir Fishing Centre. Pt. 2: Establishment of the cooperative fishing centre and its socio-economic implications 1982
    Also available in:

    The Al Quseir area was chosen as the site to set up a pioneer cooperative fishing Centre as a model to be applied in developing other fishing regions, located along the Red Sea coast, through governmental or local organizations. The components of the proposed Centre and the available facilities were determined in the light of the conclusions reached in the socio-economic survey conducted in the region. An administrative system was established, with the actual participation of the fishermen's rep resentatives, to draw up policies and decisions related to the Centre. Similarly, this system entails the participation of the fishermen in handling the daily activities of the Centre in order to ensure the formation of competent cadres of fishermen capable of managing the Centre without external assistance. So far, the activities of the Centre have focused on the mechanization of fishing boats, improvement in their construction, in addition to providing repair and maintenance services and means for transporting fish and ice. Similarly, the activities focused on improving the handling, processing and marketing of fish. Also an attempt has been made to provide some basic social services. After providing such facilities a field experiment was conducted. It consisted of establishing a cooperative fishing camp in one of the southern areas of the Egyptian coast with the objective of identifying on-the-spot problems related to the exploitation of the southern regions from which it is hoped t o increase the Egyptian catch from the Red Sea. Besides, the experiment aims at finding means for dealing with these problems through cooperative action by using existing local facilities in order to increase fish production and consequently enhance the fishermen's incomes. The experiment increased the fishermen's monthly incomes about fourfold. This, in turn, convinced fishermen of the advantage of cooperative action and of increasing the financial resources of the cooperative society which led to the improvement in the services it offers to fishermen, and controlled the exploitation of small fishermen by middlemen. It also emphasized the success of the concept of the cooperative fishing Centre as an approach to developing small-scale fishing communities.

    With the increasing need to assure consumers that the food they intend to consume is safe and nutritious, the food industry is moving away from the traditional means of buying towards a more direct and reliable means of procurement where buyers exert greater control over prices, quality and production methods. Unable to respond to the demands of the institutional buyers, there is a very real risk in the transitional economies that most smallholder farmers will become increasingly marginalized an d face diminishing returns. Development agencies worldwide are giving increasing attention to the concepts of supply chain management in seeking to address the growing income disparity between smallholder farmers and the urban community. This publication is the proceedings of the "International Symposium on Fresh Produce Supply Chain Management" held from 6 to 10 December 2006 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It contains 43 case studies of successful horticultural marketing around the world, divided int o three sections: market analyses, supply chain management and quality management. The papers address the following questions: do producers know what consumers want? How can farmers and traders coordinate their activities to meet the needs of the institutional market? How is it possible to introduce and implement quality assurance systems for horticultural producers? Also included is a summary of the policy recommendations that were proposed during the presentations and interventions to develop competitive agribusinesses and agro-industries within the horticultural sector.
