    Trade is a venue for economic development and diversification. U.S. concerns focus on exports. However, imports of counter-seasonal produce items stimulate port activity. At ports used for these products, a marketing infrastructure develops that can be useful to the domestic produce industry. Most imported produce enters at Miami or along the Delaware River. Use of Gulf of Mexico ports could shorten transportation distance for Latin American product destined for Southern and Midwestern U.S. markets. This paper reports results of a survey designed to reveal industry perceptions of the physical and marketing infrastructure, and marketing advantages and constraints, offered by selected Gulf ports.
