Abstract
  • An economic survey of the commercial operators currently active in the Queensland Reef Line fishery has been carried out, as part of a research project aimed at evaluating options available to manage the fishery. We present the background analysis of the fishery used as a basis to develop the sampling design for this survey, as well as preliminary results from the survey. The background analysis focuses on activity patterns of the fleet based on effort and catch information, as well as patterns of quota ownership and trading. Based on this information, a fleet profile describing the micro-economic structure of fishing operations is developed. This profile, which serves as a basis for the economic survey, also provides a useful basis to understand the micro-economic drivers of profitability in the fishery, and possible impacts of external shocks on fishing operations.
