Primary data was collected using simple random sampling method through interview schedules from 140 traditional fishermen owning 26-38 ft motorized fishing canoes with engine capacities varying from 8 to 9.9 horsepower in the six coastal talukas in North and South Goa. Determinants of the economic earnings from motorized canoes with the log-log model of multiple regression examined the impact of selected input of factors of production on the gross earnings from fish catch show that three independent variables, namely, horsepower, fishing hours and fuel costs had a statistically significant positive relationship on the dependent variable of gross earnings. Motorized fishing units have created employment opportunities to the people in the marine villages.

Abstract


Primary data was collected using simple random sampling method through interview schedules from 140 traditional fishermen owning 26-38 ft motorized fishing canoes with engine capacities varying from 8 to 9.9 horsepower in the six coastal talukas in North and South Goa. Determinants of the economic earnings from motorized canoes with the log-log model of multiple regression examined the impact of selected input of factors of production on the gross earnings from fish catch show that three independent variables, namely, horsepower, fishing hours and fuel costs had a statistically significant positive relationship on the dependent variable of gross earnings. Motorized fishing units have created employment opportunities to the people in the marine villages.
