Filetype[PDF-4.40 MB]

  • Description:
    "This report was prepared under contract (81-ABC-00267) by A. Lono Lyman, Inc. for Hawaii Opinion, Inc. of Honolulu, Hawaii. The purpose of the project was to present an economic analysis of the Hawaii longline and handline fishing fleets based on survey data provided by Hawaii Opinion (Southwest Fisheries Center Administrative Report H-84-7C). The data utilized in this analysis represent one point in time, the 1981 fishing year. The economic analysis was limited by three significant constraints: Reluctance on the part of commercial fishers to reveal sales revenue information, difficulties in identifying components of the longline and handline fleets, and a lack of historical. time-series information on the economic performance of these fleets. The latter limitation is mediated by previous work done on the longline fleet (cf., Ashan, Ball, and Davidson, Costs and earnings of tuna vessels in Hawaii, University of Hawaii Sea Grant Report Al2-72-01, 1972) and by a recent paper on Hawaii's Northwestern Hawaiian Islands bottom fish handline fishery (cf. Hau, Economic analysis of deep bottomfishing in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, University of Hawaii Sea Grant Report MR-84-01, 1984). Nonetheless, the data and the analysis contained in this report should be used with care"--Preface.
