Methods of price integration have been used to test price competition and transmission in the value chain of a selected group of seafood commodities imported into the Spanish market from developed and developing countries. The selected commodities are salted cod and frozen hake (whole and fillets) and frozen squid. The models studied involve data on prices of imports from different countries and of domestic retail. With the exception of frozen whole hake, price competition across exporters has been found in all the other commodities. Price and quality leaders have been identified in all cases. Price transmission has also been verified in salted cod, frozen hake fillets and frozen squid. Results of this analysis indicate that bargaining power is more likely to be exerted by Spanish importers when the trade partners are developing countries, such as in the case of hake and squid. On the contrary, when exporters are based in developed countries, as is the case for salted cod, bargaining power is more likely to be exerted by exporters than by importers.
