Monster Seminar JAM - Why look back? The value of historical information for fisheries analysis

Dr. Ian Stewart, Quantitative Scientist, International Pacific Halibut Commission

More Information:
Modern fisheries stock assessments utilize a wide variety of data sources in an integrated statistical approach capable of including data sets of variable quality and length. Despite the considerable effort involved, much can be learned through the mining of historical data and inclusion into current analyses. Several Eastern Pacific groundfish examples are used to illustrate how both methods and inference can be improved with even a rough historical perspective. Some common criticisms of historical data usage and potential solutions to these concerns will be discussed.
