Findings: The results show that there are a negative long- and short-run relations between fish production and marine trade balance; moreover, any shocks will be corrected within two periods at the most. Originality/value: This study is one of few studies in using the econometric models to study the impact of fish production on marine trade balance and foreign direct investment.
