Abstract Marine product export does something pivotal in the fish export economy of Kerala. The post WTO periodhas witnessed a strengthening of food safety and quality standards applied on food products in thedeveloped countries. In the case of the primary importers, like the EU, the US and Japan, market actionswill have far reaching reverberations and implications for the marine product exports from developingnations. The article focuses on Kerala’s marine product exports that had been targeting the markets of theEU, the US and Japan, and the concomitant shift in markets owing to the stringent stipulations under theWTO regime. Despite the overwhelming importance of the EU in the marine product exports of the state,the pronounced influence of irregular components on the quantity and value of marine product exports tothe EU in the post WTO period raises concern. However, the tendencies of market diversificationvalidated by the forecast generated for the emerging markets of the SEA, the MEA and others, to an extent,allay the pressures on the marine product export sector of the state which had hitherto relied heavily on themarkets of the EU, the US and Japan
