Executive Summary Fisheries ecosystem modelling could be a useful tool to complement present approaches to salmon research and management on Canada's west coast. Ecosystem modelling refers to a computer application that simulates, through time,…

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…
