Mark–recapture experiments can be used to estimate the exploitation rate of a fishery; however, the estimate is influenced by the tag reporting-rate by the fishers. We present two methods to estimate the reporting rates in high/low reward ($100 and $10 CAD respectively) long-term cod tagging experiments. We fit two binomial logistic mixed-effect models, one(More)
We study the sensitivity of fishery management per-recruit harvest rates which may be part of a quantitative harvest strategy designed to achieve some objective for catch or population size. We use a local influence sensitivity analysis to derive equations that describe how these reference harvest rates are affected by perturbations to productivity(More)
We present a semiparametric likelihood approach to estimating reporting rates and tag-loss rates from the tags returned from capture-recapture studies. Such studies are commonly used to estimate critical population parameters. Tag loss rates are estimated using double-tagged animals, while reporting rates are estimated using information from high-reward(More)
We derive some statistical properties of the distribution of two Negative Binomial random variables conditional on their total. This type of model can be appropriate for paired count data with Poisson over-dispersion such that the variance is a quadratic function of the mean. This statistical model is appropriate in many ecological applications including(More)
We present local influence diagnostics to measure the sensitivity of a biological limit reference point (LRP) estimated from fitting a model to stock and recruitment data. LRPs are low levels of stock size that the management of commercial fisheries should avoid with high probability. The LRP we examine is the stock size at which recruitment is 50% of the(More)
