Description

<p> This paper examines the price formation of John dory Zeus faber Linnaeus on the ex-vessel market. We use daily data across 13 ports during the period April 20-August 31, 2014 in Mie Prefecture, Japan. Since the supply at these landing markets can be reasonably considered to be perfectly price-inelastic, the observed price and quantity are expected to follow a downward sloping demand curve. The observed relationship, however, turns out to be upward sloping for the most part. This relationship remains in our regression analysis after controlling for the quality of the harvests, the national price, prices of substitute goods, and climate conditions. We discuss several possibilities that drive this empirical result.</p>
