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. .

Effects of upper-body sprint-interval training on strength and endurance capacities in female cross-country skiers Vandbakk, Kristine; Welde, Boye; Hovstein, Andrea; Baumgart, Julia Kathrin; Ettema, Gertjan; Karlsen, Trine; Sandbakk, Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-02-27)Thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of ionic liquids (ILs) are investigated in this work. A hot disk method for ILs thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity measurement is utilized. Firstly, the thermal conductivity of water is measured to check the reliability of the hot disk method. In addition, the thermal conductivity of pure ILs, including BmimBF<sub>4</sub>, BmimPF<sub>6</sub>, ...
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 ...
Cancer-associated fibroblasts from human NSCLC survive ablative doses of radiation but their invasive capacity is reduced Hellevik, Turid; Pettersen, ingvild; Berg, Vivian; Winberg, Jan-Olof; Moe, Bjørn Torvald Greve; Bartnes, Kristian; Paulssen, Ruth H; Busund, Lill-Tove; Bremnes, Roy M.; Chalmers, Antony; Martinez, Inigo Zubiavrre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)BACKGROUND: Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts (CAFs) are significant components of solid malignancies and play central roles in cancer sustainability, invasion and metastasis. In this study we have investigated the invasive capacity and matrix remodelling properties of human lung CAFs after exposure to ablative doses of ionizing radiation (AIR), equivalent to single fractions delivered by stereotactic ...
