Production model fitting and projection for Acadian redfish (Sebastes fasciatus) in units 1 and 2 = Ajustement du modèle de production et projection pour le sébaste d'Acadie (Segastes fasciatus) dans les unités 1 et 2 by M. K McAllister( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents a stock assessment and long-term projections over 60 years, approximately three generations, for the Unit 1 and 2 Acadian redfish population. It reports on the use of a state-space Schaefer surplus production modelling approach fitted with Bayesian methods. This approach has previously been applied to Pacific Sebastes species for assessment and projection. Population trajectories are determined under different fishing scenarios including status quo. The sensitivity of these results was examined in relation to priors and deviations from reported historical catch.--Document
An updated production model fitting for redfish (Sebastes fasciatus and Sebastes mentella) in Units 1 and 2 by M. K McAllister( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A state-space Bayesian surplus production model (BSP) was fitted separately to Unit 1&2 Sebastes fasciatus and Sebastes mentella. This fitting used the same assumption and inputs as previous fittings in 2011 and 2012 but catch and survey data were updated until 2015. Additionally, it was possible to extend one survey data series back to 1984 which before only went back to 1990. The utility of the present approach is primarily to show the level of decline experienced by these two stocks in relation to stock biomass limit reference points that are production based.--Document

Production model fitting and projection for Atlantic redfish (Sebastes fasciatus and Sebastes mentella) to assess recovery potential and allowable harm = Ajustement du modèle de production et projection pour le sébaste atlantique (Sebastes fasciatus et Sebastes mentella) afin d'évaluer le potentiel de rétablissement et les dommages admissibles by M. K McAllister( Book )

"This document presents long-term projections over 60 years, approximately three generations, for east coast redfish populations using a state-space Schaefer surplus production modelling approach fitted with Bayesian methods and which has previously been applied to Pacific Sebastes species for assessment and projection (Stanley et al. 2009). Population trajectories are determined under different fishing scenarios which can be seen as 'allowable harm'. Sensitivity of these results was examined in relation to priors and deviations from reported historical catch."--Document

Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis for Recreational Trout Fisheries in British Columbia, Canada: A Bayesian Network Implementation( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: One of the key challenges in recreational fisheries management is to provide a rational basis for decisions in the face of conflicting objectives, such as improving angling opportunities, maintaining satisfaction across a diverse fishing client base, controlling costs, and conserving wild populations. We developed a multi-criteria decision analysis approach for managing recreational trout fisheries (e.g., Rainbow Trout Oncorhynchus mykiss). The approach was implemented in a Bayesian decision network. The decision support tool, called "Stock-Optim, " provides a user-friendly interface for predicting fishery performance from alternate stocking prescriptions. The tool integrates survey information on angler typology and satisfaction with previously developed models for fish biology and fishery dynamics to more fully consider the biological and social outcomes of management decisions. Specifically, the tool evaluated alternative stocking options given three performance criteria: angler effort, angler satisfaction, and the cost of the stocking program. Predicted effort was highest for fish that were released in the size range of 8-20 g and at stocking densities of 200-500 fish/ha. Effort maximization at these rates and sizes is a result of compromise between the conflicting preferences of Rainbow Trout enthusiasts and occasional anglers toward fish size and harvest. Furthermore, lowering the stocking program's costs will lead to lower stocking rates and thereby favor the enthusiasts. Currently, stocking levels in British Columbia are lower than levels that would maximize effort and are most consistent with a policy of maximizing satisfaction for Rainbow Trout enthusiasts and minimizing costs. Stock-Optim will allow managers to compare predicted outcomes from the current and alternative regimes with stated lake-specific or region-specific management objectives and regional averages and thereby more closely meet these objectives in the future. Lastly, the model was validated by comparing predicted effort with observed effort in stocked lakes. Received February 1, 2016; accepted July 14, 2016
