Preliminary economic evaluation of 10 metre (LOA) shallow draft vessel in daily fishery, off Imo River, Cross River State.
In: 3rd Annual Conference of the Fisheries Society of Nigeria (FISON)
, 22-25 February, 1983
, Maiduguri, Nigeria.
Scientists from the Institute with the collaboration of Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), Rome designed and built a 10-m (LOA) shallow draft vessel. The prototype vessel was tried at Uta-Ewa, Ikot Abasi, Cross River State. The paper deals with the preliminary economic analysis of the performance of prototype vessel. An analysis of the annual return has shown that 43.66% of the annual gross income was paid to labour; 15.91% was spent on repairs and replacements; 7.76% on fuel and lubricants; 24.38% on maintenance costs and the return of investment, 6.2%. This low return of investment is attributable to high percentage of labour costs as well as low fishing intensity
