The paper deals with several models for the calculation of the yearly attainable landings of stern freezer trawlers, using technical input variables like the volume of the fishholds and the freezing rate and operational variables like a continuity factor for the process of freezing blocks of fish, a factor describing the stowage of the cargo in the holds, the duration of the voyage to and from the fishing grounds and the amount of days the vessel is in port for unloading the cargo and for maintenance and repair.
