Abstract

type="main" xml:lang="fr"> Des élasticités de la demande de fruits de mer déterminées en fonction des périodes et des endroits fourniraient de l'information importante aux producteurs et aux commerçants de ces produits ainsi qu'aux responsables des orientations politiques. Dans le présent article, nous avons analysé les répercussions des périodes et des endroits sur (i) la demande (ajustement via l'ordonnée de chaque équation), (ii) le prix, ainsi que sur l’élasticité de la demande par rapport aux dépenses (ajustement via une normalisation des prix) de 13 espèces de poissons à nageoires aux États-Unis. Nous avons utilisé les données scanographiques relevées auprès de 52 marchés aux États-Unis. Nos résultats autorisent à penser que la quantité demandée de même que l’élasticité de la demande varient selon les espèces, les périodes et les endroits. Le degré de concurrence entre les produits de poissons à nageoires varie considérablement par rapport aux endroits, mais les produits de substitution changent aussi. Nos résultats font ressortir l'importance d’étudier le comportement du consommateur et la demande selon les espèces, les périodes et les endroits, particulièrement parce qu'ils apportent des éclaircissements sur des enjeux politiques importants tels que la substitution possible entre la barbue de rivière et le tilapia sur les marchés aux États-Unis.
