Abstract

The diffusion of frozen fish depots in Ibadan Metropolitan Area was examined to confirm the veracity of the proposed empirical regularities in Hagerstand's model. A set of questionnaires was administered to the proprietors of all depots existing in the study area in 1995. Five main factors were identified as being important in influencing the entrepreneurs' decision-making in the location of their depots at their present sites. These are nearness to a public market, availability of space, demand, accessibility to the public market and customers and electricity supply. At least two of the regularities proposed by Hagerstrand (1967)were confirmed in this study. Favourable sites for new depots were proposed on the basis of the perception or mental maps of the entrepreneurs.
