Detailed economic analyses of fisher performance are critical inputs in improving the management of fisheries.
The paper provides guidelines about the economic methodologies and the data required to monitor and assess the
performance of individual transferable quota fisheries. In particular, it describes the methods of evaluation that could be
applied to examine profitability, competitiveness, efficiency, equity, productivity, output and input interactions, capacity and
sustainability of such fisheries.
