Abstract or Summary
  • This paper uses the propensity-score matching method to examine the effects of a government subsidy program on the profitability of fisheries. The approach analyzes the effects at the individual vessel level through representative surveys of costs and earnings data. Bioeconomic theory and a vessel economics framework for an open-access fishery are bases for an empirical discussion of a case study on Vietnam's offshore gillnet fishery. The result demonstrates that the subsidy program has positive effects on vessel profitability and that the profits are eroded over the two years of the analysis. The subsidies have positive impacts on the operating cash flows of large vessels but negative effects on their intra-marginal rent and bring benefits to vessel owners rather than crewmembers. This study provides the first analysis of the treatment evaluation of subsidies in a Southeast Asian fishery and discusses evidence that fish stocks may be biologically overfished.
