Abstract Linear regression analysis is often used in fisheries and ecological studies. Parameters in a linear model are estimated by fitting the model to observed fisheries data with assumptions made concerning model error structure. The commonly used estimation method in fisheries and ecology is ordinary least squares (LS) which is based on the Gauss–Markov assumption on the model error. Data observed in fisheries studies are often contaminated by various errors. Outliers frequently arise when… CONTINUE READING
