MARTINEZ GONZALEZ, Guillermo y ALVAREZ SANTANDER, Claudio. Technical and financial feasibility of the commercial fishery of Juan Fernandez's golden crab (Chaceon chilensis). Investig. mar. [online]. 2000, vol.28, pp. 203-218. ISSN 0717-7178. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-71782000002800015.
The technical and financial feasibility of the golden crab fishery (Chaceon chilensis in Juan Fernandez's archipelago was analyzed. To evaluate the investment project, a systemic approach was used to analyze and to structure this situation problem. It was considered feasible an annual production of 14,4 ton of pieces of crab (pincers and legs), cooked and frozen without shell, in portions of 1/2 and 3/4 pounds; and 33,6 ton of crab meat, cooked and frozen in blocks of 1 and 2 pounds. For this production, the raw material would be supply by the extractive activity of 10 artisanal fishing crafts, which would operate in complementary form or alternative to the lobster fishing. The project is high sensitive to the prices of the products and the prices of the raw material. A great proportion of the investment is due to the work capital dedicated to the raw material purchase it prevails, in values that the fishermen allow to absorb the investment in technological innovations required to prepare the artisanal fishing craft. The results of the financial evaluation indicate that a probability of 73% of success of the investment would exist, being calculated a IRR of 49%, a ROI of 1,73 and a NPV of 17.538,6 UF, equivalent at $238.963.970 chilean pesos
