The Effects of Age on Vessel Performance and Fleet Capacity

C E Tucker

This report describes the development of mathematical models which demonstrates the effect of a vessel’s size, age and fishery on its performance, expressed in terms of income and returns to capital and labour. On the basis of these models, a fleet capacity simulation model, CAPSIM, has been developed, as described herein. This model is intended for use with simple available data to assess the impact on fleet capacity resulting from structural change. An example of its application to Humberside is presented. In addition, in order to aid the EEC, who have supported this work, descriptive material covering the UK, Belgian, Netherlands, FRG and Ireland is appended, and reported in terms suitable for use with this model.

An investigation into the possibilities for improvement in fishing industry facilities at Poole

C.T.W. Curr

Development of the area of sheltered moorings known as Fishermen’s Dock was proposed in 1982. Subsequently, Poole Harbour Commissioners questioned the ability of the local fishermen to service a loan which would be required to meet costs. Official statistics greatly under-estimate landings and landed value and this has been confirmed by an SFIA investigation. This study also suggests alternative improvement schemes and modifications to the ‘dock’ scheme. Conclusions are reached on the ability of the full time fishermen to pay for the necessary loan based on a sampling of boat’s earnings in a study of costings for the Fishermen’s Dock and some assumed costs for modified schemes.

'Kinlochbervie' the development of a UK specialised fishing port for the North of Scotland

D. Wood

Kinlochbervie has experienced rapid expansion in recent years and landings of demersal fish are now 18000 tonnes. The port has become grossly overcrowded and plans are being made to improve the facilities. This report represents the SFIA's views on how best use can be made of funds to develop a specialised port for fishing.

North of Scotland Box Pool Proposal - A feasibility study

H. McDiarmid, R.J.A. Nichol

The study examined the way in which a box pool could be established in the N.E. Scotland taking advantage of the introduction of plastic boxes to replace the traditional wooden box. Two alternative systems are costed - one in which the entire stock of boxes is held by the box pool and the other in which the ownership of the boxes is shared between the pool and users.

Phase One Development Sutten Harbour Company - Fish market and Insra Structure

M. Myers, R.J.A. Nicholson

Sutton Harbour Company plan to develop harbour facilities to improve landing and berthage of vessels and to create a modern service structure essential to the requirements of both local and visiting vessels and to primary processing and marketing of fish and shellfish. Existing facilities are inadequate, unreliable, antiquated, unhygienic and poorly sited. In essence the plan is to relocate the fish market, merchanting and service related activities to the eastern side of the harbour where better access and greater availability of space will allow for sensible development to the benefit of all sectors of the fish industry. Detail of existing port services, the local fleet, fish landings and resource opportunities is provided in Sea Fish Industry Authority Technical Report Number 320, September 1987. This report has been produced from a scanned original and may therefore contain some formatting and other inaccuracies.
