ICES training course on Stock Assessment Advanced
This five-day course was designed to train stock assessment scientists and advisors in population dynamics and advanced stock assessment. The course was aimed at scientists who have a foundation in the fundamentals of stock assessments.
Theory was put into practice as much as possible by working on examples from different angles. Various assumptions were examined, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of different methods.
The course was organized into a series of sessions with alternating focus on theoretical concepts and hands-on work on examples. These example sessions will be completed in different software environments such as R and AD Model Builder.
Besides building assessment models and estimating uncertainty using various tools, there was detailed discussion about closely- related analytical techniques to improve scientific advice for managers.
The VRE provided a platform for communication, document sharing, information sharing and identification of other course participants.
The ICES training course information is limited to course participants, therefore the VRE and it's content is private. For more information about the content of ICES training courses, please contact email@example.com
