This function applies the time series method of Pennington (1986) for estimating relative abundance to a survey series of catch per tow data

1 |

`year` |
vector containing the time series of numeric year labels. |

`index` |
vector containing the time series of mean catch per tow data. |

`logtrans` |
a logical value indicating whether the natural log-transform should be applied to the mean catch per tow values. Default is TRUE. |

`graph` |
a logical value indicating whether a graph of the observed and model fit should be drawn. Default is TRUE. |

Parameters for a first difference, moving average model of order 1 are estimated from the trawl time series using function `arima`

.
Following Equation 4 in Pennington (1986), fitted values are calculated from the model residuals and the estimate of theta.

List containing summary statistics (sample size (n), the first three sample autocorrelations (r1-r3) for the first differenced logged series) and parameter estimates (theta, theta standard error, and sigma2), the observed log-transformed index and fitted values, and the ARIMA function output.
