Abstract or Summary
  • There are many fishing landing areas in southern Iran, distributed all along the northern Persian Gulf. Despite increasing effort, the total catch has fluctuated in recent years. Iran is facing with over capacity of vessels and too many fishers, yet simultaneously political, social and economical pressures exist for expansion of fishing effort. It is extremely difficult to make management and resource allocation among competing user groups. This study examines the technical efficiency and profitability of the fishing industry in order to select the best fishing vessels group. The results indicate that wooden vessels of medium size are more efficient than small fiberglass ones. The result of profitability analysis using internal rate of return, and benefit cost ratio indicate that big vessels are in critical stage. Although small and medium vessels are profitable, but medium vessels are more economically efficient than others.
