Abstract or Summary
  • Differences in technical efficiency of fishing vessels are often attributed to skipper skill and differences in technology. While the later can be defined in terms of the technology employed, the former is more difficult to quantify. In this paper, the contribution of technology and skipper characteristics (e.g. level of education, experience, training) to technical efficiency are examined using a stochastic production frontier. Three types of fishing activities are examined: mobile gear (e.g. trawl), potters and netter-liners. The results suggest that technology and skipper characteristics can affect the level of efficiency, although these effects differ by gear type used. Traditional measures of labour skill (education and experience) are found to be less relevant when trying to measure skipper skill.
