Shrimp fishing in Sicily is carried out by fishing using trawlers and multifuncitional vessels equipped with trawling nets, in a complex and worrisome context, because of the decrease in catch over the last few years. After analysing the structural characteristics of Sicilian trawling, the study concentrates on the three most important shrimp fishing ports in Sicily: Mazara del Vallo, Sciacca, and Porto Empedocle. For each fleet, through a sample analysis, economic performance has been evaluated for the period from 2001to 2003. Finally, a comparative analysis of the economic performance of the surveyed companies is carried out through a compararison of daily economic productivity indicators.
