The paper uses the methods of mixture model and K- means cluster to determine the number of states that can be grouped in production of fish in large quantity for foreign market and other for local consumption. The estimation of parameters was done using maximum likelihood by means of the EM algorithm for the finite mixture model. The data used was extracted from the Annual Abstract of Statistics of National Bureau of Statistics. The results show that only one state produces an average of 72… CONTINUE READING
