Showers, P.A.T. (1999) Escalation in shrimp production in the Sierra Leone industrial fishery. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 22(3), pp. 29-31.
Applying Turkey's jackknife method on MSY estimates from the surplus production models of Schaefer and Fox showed that the optimum yield for shrimps in industrial fishery in Sierra Leone is estimated at 2,686.8 t with 15,822 fishing days. Annual catch for 1996 was 2,788 t, indicating an escalation in exploitation which, if prolonged, could bring reduced productivity as experienced in the fishery some years ago.
