Description:This is half day course is being hosted by the Early Career Professional Committee and is intended for early career professionals and students who want to use R to estimate basic population dynamic rates. Attendees will learn concepts and code from Introductory Fisheries Analyses with R by Dr. Derek Ogle using a hybrid of lecture, code demonstration, and hands on exercises. Students will use R to construct and apply an age-length key to estimate ages of individual fish from their lengths, estimate mortality rates and compare rates among groups, fit a von Bertalanffy growth function (VBGF) and compare function parameters among groups, and fit several stock-recruitment functions.
