Abstract Emerging risks have been defined as potential food-borne, feed-borne, or diet-related hazards that may become a risk for human health in the future. This study disentangles how emerging risks relate to international trade. It develops a basic framework for the economic analysis of emerging risks, and describes a case study on residues of antibiotics in farmed shrimp to explore the use of trade analysis methodologies for the purposes of signalling and warning. The main conclusion is that an understanding of risk creating and risk reducing behaviour is pivotal for the identification of emerging risks.
