Abstract: 

This study explores productivity potentials in the shrimp farming in Bosheher province as one of the major shrimp producing region in Iran, using the Tornqvist-Theil index of total factor productivity (TFP). In addition, some partial factor productivity indices including labor, capital, and intermediate input productivity indices were computed. The indices were derived based on the data collected from 32 out of 103 active shrimp farms in 1381 in Bosheher.
Results indicate that TFP index varies from 0.35 to 1.48 units among the producing farms in the sample. 64 percent of the farms in the sample indicate productivity less than the average farm productivity, while the rest reveal a TFP above the average farm total factor productivity. Furthermore, considerable differences in intermediate input productivity as well as labor and capital productivities are revealed among the farms in the study region. The presence of highly productive farms in the sample and the vast difference in the partial as well as total factor productivities among the shrimp farms in the region reveal the fact that there is a good potential for enhancing productivity and consequently reducing the unit cost of production in the shrimp farming in the study region.
