The export of seafood has been instrumental in the growth of India's fishing and aquaculture industries, playing a pivotal role in poverty reduction and employment generation. Various factors such as personal motivations, geographic advantages, prior experience, and environmental conditions influence individuals' decisions to enter the seafood export business. Therefore, it is essential to analyze the significance attributed to these different factors in initiating seafood export ventures within the research area. This study aims to shed light on the perspectives of seafood exporters, including those involved in manufacturing, trade, and ornamental fish, regarding the factors driving the commencement of seafood export enterprises.
