Measuring capacity and capacity utilization in small-scale fisheries in Nha Trang
AuthorTang, Thi Hien
To develop effective capacity management programs, it is significant to evaluate and control the fishing capacity and its utilization in order to reduce overcapacity and excess capacity and create a stable development of marine resources. This study estimate fishing capacity and capacity utilization (CU) for the multi-species small- scale trawlers in Nha Trang, Vietnam. Data were collected through a survey of 65 small-scale trawler owners in two years 2005 and 2006. Using a mathematical programming approach - data envelopment analysis (DEA), the results from this study show that most of vessels in Nha Trang were operating at less than their full capacity and there was excess capacity in the trawl fleet. Based on these findings, some policy implications for trawl fishery management in Nha Trang are also provided and discussed. .

Changes in the antioxidative capacity of saithe (Pollachius virens) and shrimp (Pandalus borealis) press juice and muscle during a simulated gastrointestinal digestion. Jensen, Ida-Johanne (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2008-05-22)Sammendrag Reaktive oksygenforbindelser (ROS) brukes ofte som en fellesbetegnelse for frie radikaler og reaktive oksygenforbindelser. Disse produseres kontinuerlig i kroppen. Kroppen har differensierte systemer for å beskytte seg mot skader fra slike forbindelser; antioksidanter. Dersom forholdet mellom ROS og antioksidanter blir høyt, kan det oppstå en tilstand som kalles oksidativt stress. ROS ...
Effect of processing on antioxidative capacity of seafood muscle during a simulated gastrointestinal digestion Abrahamsen, Hogne (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-05)Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are free radicals and non radical oxygen species which are unavoidably produced in the body. Oxidative stress represents a disturbance in the equilibrium status of pro-oxidants and antioxidants reactions in favor of the pro-oxidants. In living organisms and the condition can damage cellular lipids, proteins, or DNA. By far the most important defense mechanism against ...
The evolution of the “harvest machinery” : why capture capacity has continued to expand in Norwegian fisheries Johnsen, Jahn Petter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2005)Controlling the expansion of capture capacity has been a major challenge for the fisheries management systems around the North Atlantic. Despite focused attempts to reduce this capacity in recent years in different jurisdictions, it has continued to expand. This chapter uses a case study of changes in Norwegian fisheries to help explain why this has happened. The article supports the replacement of ...
