STOCK ASSESSMENT WITH GENERALIZED DEPLETION MODELS COMBINED WITH POPULATION DYNAMICS MODELS
9 - 12 March 2020 · CCMAR – Centre of Marine Sciences
University of Algarve | Campus de Gambelas | Building 7 | Room 2.31a
This course is oriented to marine biologists, fishery managers, statisticians and modellers of the dynamics of marine populations. It shows how to use the R package CatDyn to achieve statistically solid estimations of stock abundance, natural mortality, fishing mortality, exploitation rate, maximum sustainable yield, among other quantities, using elementary fisheries monitoring data. The modelling framework is useful to data-poor and data-limited fisheries, small-scale and coastal fisheries. It is versatile, accommodating different life histories, multi-fleet cases, seasonality, and other common specificities of diverse fisheries.
