Crawfish Peeler Preferences for the Adoption of a Potential Crawfish Peeling Machine: A Conjoint Analysis

Darius Lewis and Jeffrey Gillespie

No 34969, 2007 Annual Meeting, February 4-7, 2007, Mobile, Alabama from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: Thirty crawfish processors' preferences for hypothetical crawfish peeling machines are evaluated using conjoint analysis. Deveining is the most important attribute, with fat retention, individual handling of crawfish, and backstrap retention being roughly equal in importance. Whether the machine is owned or leased is the least important attribute.
