Simulation Testing Used a Ricker stock recruit with process error. Simulated different catchability, vulnerability and maturation schedules by different fisheries and time periods. Estimated the recruitment deviates, and thereby age 2 recruitment. Estimated vulnerability, catchability and maturation by time periods specified. Ran 10,000 times (each run takes approximately 10 seconds-27 hours).

Summary of simulations Model has a high accuracy on estimating Recruitment & Exploitation Rates. Model is biased (underestimating) on true parameters on Catchability and Maturation. The model does not appear to capture terminal vulnerability, though ocean vulnerability is marginally better. Adding measurement error to the data, creates problems in estimation (lower error, CV 0.1)
4 Stock Model Spatial variation in stocks modeled Spatial variation in fisheries modeled 2 Pool Model structure.
4 stock- 4 fishery model Parameters estimated: –Recruitment deviate over time (25 years X 4 stocks) –Selectivity (3-ages and 4 fishery over 3 time periods for 4 stocks =144) –Maturation (3 ages and 3 time periods=9*4=36) –Initial Cohort abundance (3*4=12) –Catchability by 3 time periods for 4 fisheries and 4 stocks=48 Total =350 parameters
Tricks to Make Model Converge Maturation: Logistic by stock and time period (Prior) Vulnerability: Logistic by stock, time period & fishery (Penalty). Recruitment: Stock recruit functions by Area with time specific deviates (Prior).
Incorporating Genetics Using catch composition estimates. Added to the Objective function using a Multinomial Likelihood. Explicitly taking the values from Genetic Analysis. Estimating proportions with assignment error within the model structure.
Summary Spatially stocks and fisheries could be modeled in a single pool context using different selectivity curves over stocks, fisheries and time. Model complexity trade-off. Statistical catch at age models are more robust (empirical data and likelihood functions). Can quantify the Uncertainty in our estimates, and use in predictive models. Could add environmental forcing into the model. Have the ability to incorporate genetic information.
Next Steps Add genetics. Stratify by gear. Use age-length based estimates for selectivity by gear and area. Add environmental covariates. Quantify the scale at which fisheries and stocks could be aggregated for model. Develop a migration module that connects fisheries and stocks.
