Title: IWC population modelling / participation
Id: 2208
Investigator(s): Tom Polacheck
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Hobart [details]

Description: This small project comprises two aspects: (1) development and application of a catch at age population model for minke whales and (2) participation in the annual meeting of the IWC Scientific Committee Meeting (including presentation of the resutls). The modelling work is a collaborative project with Andre Pund (who is being funded through U. of Washington). The projects fits into CMR's strategic focus on assessment and management of sustainable fisheries. The population modelling/assessment represents innovative approaches for dealing with multiple/overlapping stocks. handling of errors in length and age. As such, it provides an opportuntity to remain at the forefront of population/assessment modelling. In addition, the IWC is at the forefront of the development of management strategies for marine populations. Participation in its SC meeting allows for CMR to gain from the experience of IWC in the MSE area in its development and application to Australian fisheries.
