The overall objective of this project is to promote the consumption of Asian catfish (Clarias species) on Guam to all segments of the general, non-tourist market.

  1. Educate consumers about Asian catfish in order to expand the market for the product on Guam.
  2. Conduct preliminary market research, including surveys of consumers at cooking demonstrations to learn their acceptance of catfish and to estimate the size of the potential market.
  3. Investigate partial mechanization of processing Asian catfish.
