Abstract or Summary
  • Since the collapse of the Newfoundland groundfishery in 1992, the snow crab fishery has become Newfoundland’s largest fishery, accounting for approximately half the value of total landings. This study uses trip log data to estimate the production frontier and the technical efficiency of this fishery using a Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) methodology. The analysis is based on over 11,000 observations taken over a five-year period. The technical efficiency of the fishery is estimated to be at a level of fifty percent or less.
