Z_CPUE: Estimate Z from CPUE data

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References Examples

View source: R/Z_CPUE.R

Description

Method to estimate the instantaneous total mortality rate (Z) from catch per unit of effort (CPUE) data according to standard, Heincke's, or Robson & Chapman's method.

Usage

1
Z_CPUE(param, method = "standard", omit_age1 = FALSE)

Arguments

param

a list consisting of following parameters:

  • cohort: a vector with with a cohort label,

  • age: a vector with ages,

  • CPUE: a vector with CPUE values;

method

a character string indicating which assessment method should be used: "standard", "Heincke", or "RobsonChapman".

omit_age1

logical; if TRUE the first age group is omitted (Default FALSE).

Details

In Heincke's and RobsonChapman's method age groups older than 4 are lumped, because age groups older than 3 or 4 are said to be hard to seperate (Ricker, 1975). Sparre and Venema (1998) recommend to omit the first age group in case it is not fully exploited by the fishery.

Value

A list with input parameters and a Z value or matrix depending on the method.
