Age-length key The length distribution for each age group is assumed to be normal distributed with mean and SD. Mean length and SD for each age group are estimated based on the parameters and data from Young, J., and A. Drake (2004).
Age-length key Length distribution for each age group (probability)
Age-length key Proportion that a fish with length X assigned to be a age X (age-length key)
