About this book

Revised and restructured, Modeling and Quantitative Methods in Fisheries, Second Edition provides an accessible introduction to quantitative methods in fisheries. This book features new material on tests and comparisons as well as new chapters on length-based models and estimating uncertainty using Bayesian methods. It presents a structured, step-by-step approach that introduces the material in a logical sequence. This text covers a range of topics such as simple linear regression, complex nonlinear modeling, methodology, and specific fields in fisheries. It also includes numerous real world examples implemented in Excel, with workbooks for all examples available for download on the web.

Media reviews
Praise for the First Edition The book is a good introduction to modeling for students and practitioners. The emphasis is on population models, with chapters on parameter estimation, randomization tests, resampling methods, Monte Carlo methods, stock-recruitment, and age-structures models. One helpful feature is the use of spreadsheet examples to illustrate the methods. --Fisheries, 2002
