Development of Mobile Application to Support the Sales of Local Capture Fisheries

 

This is a multi-year project, including conducting market research on the conventional seafood sales model and the demand of customers in Hong Kong. With reference to the results of the research, the project will develop a new method in promoting the sales of local capture fisheries by adopting the concept of business-to-customer (B2C) model with the use of a mobile application. The mobile application will provide the first direct platform for the transaction of Hong Kong's locally caught seafood such that the consumers could purchase fresh seafood from the fishermen directly. This could increase competitiveness of the local capture fisheries industry and eventually promote the sustainable development of the Hong Kong fisheries industry.
