Increasing local food production and decreasing importation

Description 

Would an import substitution add to local food security in zones 9 and10? Could local agriculture benefit from limitations on importing food to the island from other areas? Should there be more control on what is being shipped to the island? A research project could take these questions and others into consideration to better understand how local agricultural products in the region could be utilized.
