Technical efficiency effects of input controls: Evidence from Australia’s banana prawn fishery

Kompas, Tom; Nhu Che, Tuong; Grafton, Quentin


The paper provides the first ex-post estimates of the effects on technical efficiency of input controls in a fishery. Using individual vessel data from the northern prawn fishery of Australia for the years 1990–1996 and 1994–2000, a stochastic production frontier is estimated to analyse the efficiency impacts of input controls on engine and vessel size. The results indicate that technical efficiency is increasing in a measure of vessel size and engine capacity that was controlled by the...[Show more]
