Abstract


Fishing is the main activity of the coastal fishermen of Padang City. Fishermen capture fish using three types of fishing gear; in boats motor, out boats motor and non-powered boats. The data used by the National Economic Survey, BPS, with a deep understanding of the survey results. The findings indicate that all input factors of the three fishing gears have significant effect on fish catch. The catch as a representation of fixed cost and variable cost also significantly affects the total cost of catching. The boats motor is more productive than the out boat motor, but more efficient. In addition, the out boats motor is more productive and efficient than a non-powered boat. Accordingly, this study recommends that fishing communities make changes and develop fishing gear from non-powered boats to out boats motor. Furthermore, the local government is expected to make a credit program of fishermen business in the form of out boat motor purchase credit or subsidized price of out Boat motor.
