A simulation study of impacts of error structure on modelling stock-recruitment data using generalized linear models

, , , , ,
Abstract Stock-recruitment (S-R) models are commonly fitted to S-R data with a least-squares method. Errors in modeling are usually assumed to be normal or lognormal, regardless of whether such an assumption is realistic. A Monte Carlo simulation…

Incorporating uncertainty into area under the curve and peak count salmon escapement estimation

, , , ,
Abstract Uncertainty can be incorporated into area-under-the-curve (AUC) and peak count estimates of salmon escapement by conducting replicate fish counts and developing independent escapement estimates over several years. We describe a bootstrap…
