Can spatial fishery-dependent data be used to determine abalone stock status in a spatially structured fishery?
University of Tasmania (UTAS)
1. Characterise the statistical properties, coherence, interpretability and assumptions of spatial and classic indicators of fishery performance
2. Develop methods for inclusion of fine-scale spatial data in CPUE standardisations
3. Identify methods for detecting hyper-stability in CPUE
4. Determine feasibility of spatial data based stock status determination in spatially structured fisheries
