E-learning on the TropFishR Package

Tuesday 07 Mar 23
|

Target audience

  • Applied researchers in fisheries science, resource assessment and management advice  notably within pelagic and mesopelagic fishing and resource management advice.

  • University students (MSc, BSc and PhD) involved in marine resource and fisheries research, assessment and management advice programmes.

The MEESO project has produced an e-learning webinar introducing the first model needed for providing population dynamic parameters and initial stock assessment. 

This e-learning webinar from MEESO work package 5 and 8 consists of a video and slides providing an introduction to the TropFishR model estimation of growth, mortality and gear/fishery selectivity and its application to mesopelagic fish species. 

This is the first model needed for providing population dynamic parameters and initial stock assessment. 

The webinar on TropFishR the presents 

  • the background and motivation for a potential fishery targeting species in the mesopelagic
    layer. 
  • length-based methods for population dynamic parameters and stock assessment.
  • estimation of growth and mortality parameters with the TropFishR model and software package.
  • application of TropFishR to estimate life-history parameters of mesopelagic fish species.
  • further steps in relation to estimation of stock status with TropFishR. 

The output from this model provides input to other length-based assessment models such as the S6 model and the broader trophic models under MEESO.
