Efficiency gains and cost reductions from individual transferable quotas: A stochastic cost frontier for the Australian south east fishery

Kompas, Tom; Tuong, Nhu Che


In this paper efficiency gains and associated cost reductions from increases in traded quota are estimated with a stochastic cost frontier for the Australian South East Trawl Fishery (SETF). Estimation of this frontier also provides key information on the relative importance of input costs in the SETF, returns to scale, variations in costs as a result of trade in quota and the economic performance of each fishing vessel, year to year. Final estimations indicate that increases in the volume of...[Show more]
