Abstract

Current changes underway in Spain are likely to lead to changes in demand for different types of seafood products. Double-hurdle models were used to model Spanish household expenditures on these goods, explicitly accounting for the value of women’s time in the case of processed seafood goods. The empirical evidence shows that the set of statistically significant factors in the participation and expenditure equations is not the same for fresh and processed seafood goods. The value of women’s time (for expenditures on frozen, cured and canned seafood goods), income, and household demographic variables are important determinants of both participation and expenditures on seafood products.
