Job Satisfaction in the Shrimp Trawl Fisheries of Vietnam
Sinh, Le Xuan
Social Indicators Research, v109 n1 p39-51 Oct 2012
This paper investigates the job satisfaction of small-scale shrimp trawl fishers in the vicinity of Camau National Park in southern Vietnam. The research sample consisted of 77 fishers who belong to a growing population of shrimp fishers in the region. The results suggest that 60% would change their fishing metier, 78% would leave fishing for another occupation and 76% would not advise a young person to enter the occupation of fishing. These responses indicate a negative attitude towards the occupation. This is explained with reference to deteriorating stocks and low economic returns. Generally speaking, however, fishers are satisfied with the physical safety, cleanliness of work and "healthfulness" of their occupation, as well as with the quality of community life.
