Description

This function estimates the selecitvity of gillnets and trawl nets from experimental catches.

Usage

1
select(param, plot = FALSE)

Arguments

param

a list with following parameters:

  • type a string indicating which type of gear was used (options: "gillnet" or "trawl_net"),

  • midLengths midlengths of size classes

  • meshSizes a vector with mesh sizes in increasing order,

  • CatchPerNet_mat a matrix with the catches per net in corresponding order of mesh sizes

plot

logical; should the results be displayed graphically?

Details

This function estimates the fractions retained by each net, the optimum lengths for each net, the selection factor (SF), and the standard deviation of the factor (stand.dev). Calculations are based on a normal distribution with common spread. Assumptions of this method are, that (i) the optimum length Lm is proportional to the mesh size (Lm = SF * m), (ii) the selection curves are normally distributed with a common standard deviation, (iii) the nets have the same fishing power (same dimensions and material). Requirements for the experimental set-up are: selection curves corresponding to the two mesh sizes have to overlap, and the nets have to be set in the same area, during the same time. To calculate selection factor (SF), L25, L50 and L75 for trawl nets /fisheries.

Value

A list with the input parameters and following list objects for type = "gillnet": #'

and following objects for type = "trawl_net":
