    This research investigates the effects of working capital management through cash conversion cycle and itscomponents (average receivable days - ARD, average inventory days - AID, and average payable days - APD),along with the effects of the working capital management policies on firm performance and firm value in thefisheries industry. Generalized Method of Moment (GMM) was applied with the data collected from 21 fisheriescompanies listed on Vietnam's stock market in the period 2008 -2012.
