A re-examination of underlying model assumptions and resulting abundance estimates of the Fishery Independent Survey (FIS) in Australia’s SESSF
CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere Hobart
1. re-examine some of the underlying assumptions of the survey;
2. update data that conditions the model and find efficiencies in sampling design; and,
3. use a data simulation exercise to examine the utility of the estimates given the process and sampling errors that have been observed.
