Both factors can only analytically be separated from each other, in reality and especially in the dynamic perspectives they are closely interrelated. In the early work of Gereffi and others (Gereffi and Korzeniewicz 1994) on global commodity chains, there seemed to be a clear-cut division between winners (the industrialised countries of the North) and losers (the developing countries) in the formation of global commodity chains.

Freezer boats use powerful lights to attract the squid at night. Although lights can also be attached to ski-boats, these are much less powerful. According to one of the few remaining ski boat owners, the powerful lights on freezer boats effectively attract the squid ‘right from under my boat’ (interviews). Traditionally, the transformation of the squid sector is described in terms of ‘fleet evolution’. From the late 1980s, according to this account, the industry shifted its market focus – from squid as bait to high value export commodity – and in technology – from ski-boats and deck boats to sophisticated freezer vessels with high-technology fish finding equipment.
