Measuring Technical Efficiency and Capacity in Fisheries by Data Envelopment Analysis using the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS): A Workbook

Excerpt from Introduction

This workbook presents several programs for modeling production efficiency and fishing capacity which were prepared for the National Marine Fisheries Service Workshop on Capacity Estimation in Marine Fisheries (“National Capacity Workshop”) held in Silver Spring, Maryland, during September 29 - October 1, 1999. The programs are written in the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) language, a mathematical programming language used in a variety of linear, nonlinear, and mixed-integer programming models, general equilibrium models, and network models.
