Close-Kin Mark-Recapture: building models and designing projects

21-25 November 2022
AZTI, San Sebastian, Spain

Registration is closed.
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This 5-day course will concentrate on Close-Kin Mark-Recapture for commercial and bycatch species in fisheries. It is aimed at experienced stock assessment modelers and statisticians: people who could, in principle, write their own code for basic age-structured stock-assessment and/or mark-recapture. 

The main aspects will be:
  • scope and principles of CKMR
  • CK​MR for various scenarios, some easy, some tricky, some impossible: concepts thru to basic code
  • selected real-world applications
  • design: qualitative and quantitative aspects
  • key aspects of genetics and kin-finding (but note this is not a genetics course)
  • potential applications as suggested by participants: discussion and schematic models
5 days

Max number of attendees
30 people (in-person only)

  • knowing how to program your own functions in R (not just running other people's)
  • preferably: experience of writing and fitting your own population-dynamics model, or complex mark-recapture model
