Examining the Potentialities for Building Fisheries Cluster in Regional Level
Choe, Sung-Ae ; Chae, Dong-Ryul ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 1~28
In recent, the Korean fisheries industry face an overall crisis. Annual fish catch is continuously decreasing for last two decades even though various programs to improve fish population. Moreover, domestic fish market is more and more occupied by imported cheap fish products from abroad due to the consequence of open economic policy, FTA and WTO/DDA entente. Under the circumstances, this study aims to examine the potential for building fisheries cluster as a policy tool to promote fisheries and fisheries-associated industries in Korea. To achieve this goal, the authors firstly reviewed the theoretical concept of Industrial Cluster in the evolutionary economics point of view, secondly, analyzed the main components of Porterian Cluster(or innovation cluster), thirdly, derived the key reasons to induce the improvement of productivity within the cluster network system and lastly evaluated fisheries capability and industrial infrastructures of each province as a basic condition to build a fisheries cluster. The result of the study demonstrates the voluntary accumulation of fish products and processing techniques in Korea, however, it is not enough to make up a Porterian innovation. Therefore, the present is most opportune for applying fisheries cluster as a strategic policy tool. Government supports to establish innovation cluster for fisheries may contribute both fisheries industry and local economy by developing the latent capacity of fisheries and helping concentrate innovation capabilities.
Analyzing Recovered Effects of Marine Contaminated Sediment Cleanup Project on Fisheries Resources
Pyo, Hee-Dong ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 29~49
There are various types of predictable economic benefits to restoring beneficial uses from contaminated marine sediment cleanup. These benefits can be derived from reduction in aquatic animals died or infected, increase in their consumption recovery, increase in tourism including recreational fishing, reduction in human health risk, increase in amenity and aesthetics, increase in ecosystem integrity, and so on. The paper focuses on estimating the net increase in value for producers and consumers from producing and consuming those fish due to the pollution reduction of marine contaminated cleanup project. Almost Ideal Demand System(AIDS) is employed for estimate of the demand for fish, and the production cost function for fish are determined using market data. The result shows 10.8 billion won per year for economic surplus to the net increase for producers and consumers.

Han, Kyung ; Yhang, Wii-Joo ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 51~68
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of Brand Personality to Marine Tourism Destination Images and Intention to Recommend. For this purpose, factor analysis was applied to 42 of J.Aaker's Brand Personality Scale and 5 personality dimensions were extracted. This analysis was also applied for cognitive and affective images and two of cognitive images and three of affective images were extracted. Multiple regression was done to estimate the relative effects of Brand Personality to both cognitive and affective images and intention to recommend. The results indicated brand personality influenced on both cognitive and affective images and intention to recommend directly and also found affective images was influenced by cognitive images. The results also suggested useful insight for future study. The Brand Personality Scale which developed for the product by Aaker might not be suitable for measuring the marine tourism destination brand personality and necessary to develop the new scale suitable for marine tourism destination personality, and be needed to study together with other moderating variance such as satisfaction and congruency with image to verifying the exact effect between different variables.

Song, Jung-Hun ; Hong, Jae-Bum ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 69~88
This research was as part of restocking project conducted until 1986. The necessity of its economic and scientific verification on restocking project increased. The economic analysis of this project was intended to measure its effectiveness of rockfish restocking throughout certain water areas. The rockfish restocking in 2008 was carried two regional governments of Gyeongnam and Busan. 3-year average annualized performance is 3.76 million rockfish restocked and 940 million won invested. As Gyeongnam restocked 3.62 million rockfish and invested 890 million won, most of rockfish stocking accomplished in Gyeongnam. The public shipment was the 3-year average amount was about 400 tons. Each Suhyup shipment as follows; TongYong 66.6 tons, Namhae 23.6 tons, Samcheonpo 17.2 tons; Yeosu 13.3 tons, Geoje 4.7 tons, Goseong 3.1 tons, Hadong 1.0 tons. The private shipment was assessed by the interview of relevant market participations. The high percent areas of public ship were Nemaha, Goseong 90% and Geoje 80% or more. Hadong and Samcheonpo were about 50%. TongYong was 10% and the lowest. The private shipment was calculated using the percentage of private shipment surveyed. The total amount of private shipment was 4.8 billion, where 4.5 billion was TongYong, where most of private shipment is being made. The positive economic benefit occurred when the percent of restocked is over 15% in the overall catch. The percentage of restocked investigated with genetic test was 58.2%. With 58.2% ratio of restocked, there was 3.8 times economic benefit according to approximately 3.6 billion won. Economic effects were highly significant. As catch increased according restocking, joint market commission increased. Joint market commission was calculated as total restocked shipment multiplied by the ratio of commission, the calculated commissions were as follows; Hadong 5.0%, Geoje 4.8%, Goseong 4.8%, Namhae 4.8%, Samcheonpo 4.3%, Yeosu 4.3%, TongYong 4.0%. According to calculation results, annual commission fee of ￦60,000,000 was raised during 2006~2008. The fishing catch bulk for entertainment significantly increased in sea area carried with mass restock.
Expanding the Imports of North Korean Fishery Products
Sung, Souk-Kyung ; Hong, Seong-Gul ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 89~105
South Korea imports more than one hundred tons of fishery products every year from China, Japan, North Korea, etc. However, imported North Korean fishery products was only 4% of the total fishery products imported in 2007. Though South-North Trade as inter-Korean trade is exempted from tax, imports of North Korean fishery products have not been activated owing to import restrictions, insufficient quality control etc. Expanding imports of North Korean fishery products seems, however, to contribute to lessen the supply and demand unbalance in fishery products of South Korea. It will especially gratify a part of fresh and cold fishery products demand. Therefore, we need to expand the imports of North Korean fishery products by quality control improvement, reformation of origin certifying system, import liberalization etc. This study researches the demand and supply of fishery products of South and North Korea, the actual conditions of imports of North Korean fishery products, and suggests strategies to expand their imports. As the greatest reason to oppose imports of North Korean fishery products is the pricing pressure of domestically produced fishery products due to imports of North Korean fishery products, we need to research and analyze the distribution channels, retail markets, sales prices of imported North Korean fishery products to verify that imports of North Korean fishery products has not caused lower pricing of domestically produced fishery products.
Cultural Differences of Professional Organizations in Wholesale Seafood Markets
Kim, Jin-Baek ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 107~125
Research on culture has been widespread across social science researches. But there has not been any cultural research in the fisheries industry. This study tried to identify whether the culture of the fishery organization had a convergent or divergent characteristic. To do so, fishery distributors and wholesalers, who affiliated with their professional associations or wholesale seafood markets, were surveyed across supplying and consuming areas(Busan and Seoul). If fishery organizations have always been culture-bound, rather than culture free, then their members show the divergent characteristic of culture. Despite a similarity in tasks, size and market segments, if this fact is proved, fishery distributors and wholesalers in different areas will differ in many of their managerial practices such as marketing policies, communication patterns, motivation techniques, etc. And it is expected that national and industrial cultures are major determinants of their behaviors. Depending on the results of this study, fishery distributors and wholesalers had a divergent characteristic. So, it was concluded that fishery distributors and wholesalers of wholesale seafood markets in supplying area were different from those in consuming area. It was found that this difference was attributed to individualism/collectivism and masculinity/femininity dimensions. In individualism/collectivism dimension, fishery distributors and wholesalers of consuming area were stronger than those of supplying area. That is, fishery distributors and wholesalers of consuming area were more collective than those of supplying area. But in masculinity/femininity dimension, fishery distributors and wholesalers of supplying area were stronger than those of consuming area. And the divergent characteristic was moderated by demographic variables (gender, age, education level, career). Especially, masculinity/femininity dimension was more moderated by demographic variables than individualism/ collectivism dimension.

Park, Cheol-Hyung ; Lee, Sang-Go ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 127~146
This study is to estimate the factor weights of the reasons for decreases in marine fishery resources using the Analytical Hierarchy Process. Furthermore, it classifies 20 fishes under a fishery resource recovery plan into various groups of fishes according to these factor weights using the non-hierarchial cluster analysis. The factors of decreases in marine fishery resources are identified as bio-ecological, technology-system, economic-business, and fishing village-society factors. Two of the most important factors of decreases in resource are turned out to be the economic-business and bio-ecological factors, estimated as 31% and 30% respectively. The technology-system and fishing village-society factors are estimated as 21% and 18% respectively. The study utilizes non-hierarchical cluster analysis in order to classify 20 fishes into 2, 3, and 4 groups. K-means cluster analysis is applied for grouping in conjunction with ANOVA to identify statistical differences in factors. Once again, the economic-business and bio-economic factors play main role in grouping 2-groups of fishes case. The third group of fishes in addition to the previous 2 groups of fishes appears as those 4 factors of decrease evenly play about the same role at a 3-groups of fishes case. Finally, the economic-business and bio-economic factors are turned out to be evenly important in the 4th group once there are 4-groups of fishes.
A Study on Determinants Affecting At-home Laver Consumption Expenditures : Type II Tobit Model Treating Sample Selection Bias
Lee, Min-Kyu ; Park, Eun-Young ;
The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 147~167
The objective of this study is to analyze the determinants of at-home laver consumption expenditures using the data from a survey of households implemented in 2009. It happened that non-response ratios of monthly expenditures on dry laver and flavored laver among sampled households are 18.8% and 25.6%. Accordingly, this study tries to analyze the determinants affecting at-home laver consumption expenditures by using type II tobit model, one of sample selection models, to deal with sample selection bias caused from non-response data. Analysis results show the age variable positively affects expenditures on dry laver but negatively contributes to expenditures on flavored laver. In addition, the household size, the household's income, the degree of preference for laver have positive relationships with both expenditures. Household size elasticity and income elasticity of the expenditure on dry laver are estimated as 0.220 and 0.251. In the case of flavored laver, these elasticities are estimated as 0.484 and 0.261. Such analysis results can provide information on division of the at-home laver consumption market into groups with high willingness to expense and implementation of detailed marketing strategies to increase at-home laver consumption. The methodology of this study can be applied to consumer preference analysis on other marine products and other analyses on sample with non-response data in the fishery research.

The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 169~187
This study analyzes the long and short term effect of exchange rate on the import of Korea's fisheries focussed on main fisheries imported from China. The estimation models consist of the following contents. The first model consists of one dependent variable-import quantity of fisheries imported from China(
) and three independent variables-
. The second one-one dependent variable-import quantity of fisheries imported from China(
and three independent variables-
. the third one-one dependent variable-import quantity of fisheries imported from China(
) and three independent variables-
. the forth one-one dependent variable-import quantity of fisheries imported from China(
) and three independent variables-
. the last one is made up of one dependent variable-import quantity of fisheries imported from China(
) and three independent variables-,
. and. The estimation results show that exchange rate of the independent variables are statistically significant in only the first model. The figure is elastic. Especially, the effect of exchange rate in first model is grater than that of the. However, the effect of exchange rate, one of independent variables in the ECM, is not statistically significant.

The Journal of Fisheries Business Administration, volume 40, issue 3, 2009, Pages 189~205
This study is aimed to analyze the economic feasibility comparison of the extruded pellets and moist pellets on the Oliver flounder culture farms in Jeju Island. In order to do this, we selected 2 farms (M and S farms) in Jeju Island as a sample. In the study, various analyses including productivity analysis, cost structure analysis, profitability and economic feasibility analysis by feed type were conducted for two sample farms of Oliver flounder culture. The results of economic analysis by feed type on the Oliver flounder culture can be summarized as follows; First, there were not significant differences in productivity by feed type. Second, results of the profitability analysis on farm M by feed type showed the profitability was estimated to be 15.52% and 9.83% in EP and MP, respectively. In addition, the profitability of farm S was estimated to be 28.37% and 33.72% in EP and MP, respectively. Third, results of the economic analysis on farm M by feed type indicated that an internal rate of return(IRR) was 8% and 7% and a benefit-cost ratio was shown to be 1.64 and 1.11 in EP and MP, respectively. Furthermore, the economic analysis of farm M by feed type showed that an IRR was 19% and 24% and a benefit-cost ratio was calculated to be 1.4 and 1.51 in EP and MP, respectively. In summary, it is especially emphasized that economic valuation is not related to feed types (EP and MP). Finally, in order to improve the economic feasibility, it should be more focused on the efficient business management of the Oliver flounder aquaculture.
