ATT: Workshop on data-limited methods for fisheries using R

Course Description 

Participants will review the rich suite of methods available on mean length data and then using the MLZ package in R, they will be able to interpret the results.

Format 

In the first part of the workshop, we review the rich suite of methods now available based on mean length data. These include the estimators that assume equilibrium (Beverton-Holt, Ehrhardt-Ault, length-converted catch curve), and non-equilibrium estimators (Gedamke-Hoenig, Then et al., Huynh et al.). In the second part of the workshop, we show participants how to fit the models using the MLZ package in R (available through CRAN online) and how to interpret the results. Participants are encouraged to bring a computer with R, RStudio and the package MLZ installed so they can try using the MLZ package.

 

 

Pre-requisites 

Fisheries background, able to use R, must attend the CCMAR seminar (info here).

Virginia Institute of Marine Science (USA)
John M. Hoenig is a Professor of Marine Science at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (USA). He has a MSc in Statistics and a MSc and a PhD in Biological Oceanography from the University of Rhode Island. A quantitative fisheries scientist, his research interests include developing methods for studying population dynamics and assessing fisheries and determining appropriate management options. He uses statistical theory, mathematical modeling, and computer simulation to develop methods for interpreting tagging, survey, catch, effort, and age data, and just about any other type of data...
