Abstract

We give a geostatistical analysis of western king prawn logbook data collected from the Shark Bay prawn fishing fleet in Western Australia for the 2000 and the 2004 fishing seasons, aggregated into total catch, together with three weight sub-classes and grouped into lunar months. For each of the two years we discuss both the spatial correlation between the weight classes and the spatial correlation for corresponding months in the two years under consideration. Finally, we use a cost function that takes account of the different weight classes to compare the financial return by location between 2000 and 2004.
