Competition between the Different Types of Fishing Craft

By Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Nutrition Reference Publication

Electronic reproduction.

Excerpt: One of the justifications for the introduction of the BLC, and motorized and mechanized fishing craft in general, is that these fishing craft enable fishermen to exploit alternative fish resources further offshore, thereby lessening pressure on the resources fished by the non-motorized, traditional fishing craft operating inshore. To investigate whether such exploration of alternative fish resources is practised in reality by motorized fishing craft and to get an idea about the present competition between different categories of fishing craft operating at each location, the following were studied ? Data on the area of fishing operations according to depth of the fishing grounds and their distance from the fishing centre. ? Data on the timing of the fishing operations. ? Information on the different types of fishing gear used by each category of fishing craft. ? Data on species caught and the average price received on marketing (as an indication of the size of fish caught).
