Bayesian integrated survey-based assessments: an example applied to North Sea herring (Clupea harengus) survey data
Abstract:Stock assessments that use only fisheries independent data have been developed from a number of different standpoints over the last 15 years. While the ability of such stock assessments to avoid the use of potentially compromised or hard to interpret commercial data or making certain assumptions that are common to traditional assessments has been established, little has been made of their potential for detecting and estimating complex mortality trends over time or their potential utility in survey-based management procedures.
