This paper examines the return and volatility transmission between the fossil oil market and two mostly traded seafood commodity markets of salmon and shrimp. A unique feature of these markets is that biofuel feedstocks are used as essential feed ingredients in seafood production. The empirical analysis relies on a relatively new econometric method which exploits a bivariate version of nondiagonal GARCH model that allows for an asymmetry in the variance-covariance matrix. This study considers a multivariate t distribution in the maximum likelihood estimations by taking into account the tail properties of returns. The results identify significant price change and volatility transmissions from fossil oil markets to salmon markets. In contrast, the information transmission from crude oil price returns to shrimp price changes appears to be more prevalent than the variance transmission.
