Example estimations of yield and fishery profit when few data are available

Very preliminary bioeconomic assessments are reported in respect to fishery situation in Kenya. In the case of the shrimp fishery, it is concluded that the contemporary trawler fleet is substantially in excess of that required to maximise fishery profits. The second situation concerns the presently unexploited stock of quality demersal species on the North Kenya Bank. It is concluded that this stock might be sufficient to support a fishery, although involving probably no more than a few vessels.
