  Non-conventional seafood products, fish sausage and fish ball were developed from underutilized sea catfish and consumer’s acceptance and market test of the new products were conducted in inland rural and coastal fishing communities. Sea catfish, achysurus thalassinus was collected from Chittagong in an insulated box. The cost of production and profit of the products were assessed in the laboratory of the Faculty of Fisheries, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, Bangladesh. From a 1000 g catfish, 500 g washed mince could be recovered. From 500 g washed mince, a total of 1000 g dough could be produced and from this dough 17 pieces of fish sausage and 40 pieces of fish ball were produced. The total production cost of the products from 1000 g dough including raw materials, ingredients, wage, transportation, storage and marketing was Tk. 75. Pilot market-testing were done in 10 villages of Mymensingh and six coastal villages of Chittagong. Finally, an analysis of the cost and profit of production was done on the basis of the price of product set by the people, the price of raw material in the market, tentative cost of productions and cost of transportation and storage. As per the average selling price obtained from the market tests, products of 1000 g can be sold at Tk. 136/- for sausage (Tk. 8/- each) and Tk. 160/- for fish ball (Tk. 4/- each) in the rural market of Bangladesh. Therefore, a net profit of Tk. 61 from fish sausage and Tk.85 from fish ball could be realized, from a manufacture of 1000 g whole sea catfish. Consumer’s acceptance and market tests revealed that fish ball was best chosen between the two products.
