    In a place like Sicily, where sea fishing and port activities are part of the territory, history and culture, fishery has always been vital to man and, for this reason, today it must be studied, protected and helped in the difficult transition towards long-term sustainability. Fishing is a driving sector for Mazara economy both for number of working days during the fishing season, and for industrial activities operating around this field (transformation, packaging, and distribution). A micro-economic analysis was carried on a sample of fishing enterprises in order to analyze the problems of the here studied seamanship. The analysis is based on the employers’ interviews. The collected data highlights: the quantity and quality of fishing, materials and services outside and around this field and, the final destination of the product. The data processed through the economic balance sheet, allowed the identification of the current seamanship economic situation in Mazara del Vallo. Possible solutions (business strategies) to develop the sector competitiveness have been drawn from the results obtained by processing the data.
