The Economics Efficiency of Cyprinus Carpio Growout Cultured In Running Water Pond

Lindawati Lindawati, Tajerin Tajerin


This study is estimating the production economic efficiency of running water pond, cultured-
Cyprinus carpio growout. Primary data is analyzed using Cobb Douglas function approach.
The result indicated that factors which significantly affected production were fishseed,
fish-feed, and labor. The efficiency analysis showed that actual Cyprinus carpio growout
had not reached its efficient level, since input usage was below its optimum level, thus
the maximum profit was not gained. To be able to gain more profit, according to the calculation
under the optimum condition assumption, running water pond, cultured Cyprinus carpio
growout had to reduce fish-seed usage while increasing fish-feed and labor usage.
Keywords: efficiency, economic of scale, Cyprinus carpio growout, running-water-system
