The objective of this study was to develop an export determinant model for laver in the producing district. The annual and monthly amounts of laver products, local price, export price, and foreign exchange rate were included as explanatory variables. The estimation showed that the laver export is influenced more by the long term rather than short term product increase. In addition, as the foreign exchange rate and export price increase, the quantities exported decrease elastically. On the other hand, as the price in the local market increases, the quantities exported decrease non-elastically. Therefore, to enhance the laver exports, it is important to establish infrastructure for long term production increase, forecast and provide information on the export price and foreign exchange rate more accurately.
