The expected Fisher information gain per extra capture in a sequential capture-recapture experiment is found to grow faster than linear in number of captures when the population is closed and homogeneous. A similar pattern is found for open populations, with information gain growing faster to its maximum the shorter the longevity is. From simulating � :
