Recruitment : increase of the fish in to the stock at the age a fish can be caught

Fish experience Mass Mortality at the early life stage. The magnitude will be less than 1/1000.

The S-R relationship is not clear and sometimes looks like no relationship between them.

S-R models are used for describing ideal relationship

Beverton and Holt Model

Ricker Model

MSY will be calculated from S-R curve.

VBGC is often used for describing the fish growth

Weight is converted by the allometric equation.

Instantaneous rate of mortality is used

Total mortality Z is observed from age composition.

Usually Natural Mortality Mis estimated from Empirical Equations

Fishing mortality F is estimated as Z minus M

Basic Idea of Population Dynamics of Exploited Stock 3 Closed stock : without Immigration / Emigration Stock size will be increase only by Recruitment Growth Stock size will decrease only by Natural Mortality Fishing Mortality If increasing factor and decreasing factor balance, then the stock size will be stable

Russell’s Equation (Russell 1931) Russel, E. S. 1931. Some theoretical considerations on the ‘overfishing’ problem. Journal du Conseil International pour l’Exploration de la Mer, 6: 3- 20.

Stock Growth 8 Stock Growth is the increasing factors of the stock. It is divided Recruitment and Individual Growth. Recruitment is a factor of stock growth, which adding number of individuals in the stock. Individual Growth (or simply Growth) is a factor of growth, which adding weight of each individual in the stock.

Definition of Recruitment 11 Recruitment is defined as the increase of the number of individual into the stock at the age a fish CAN be caught. Cf.Age at First Capture Recruitment will be affected both with life history and fishery. Migration from Nursery ground to Fishing ground Body length reaches to the minimum size for fishing

Mass Mortality 13 In the life history of fish from the hatching to the recruit, most fish species experience mass mortality. The magnitude of the survival rate will be less than 0.001 level. The factor of the mass mortality will be Feeding Unsuccessful transportation Competition on feeding Mismatch of the prey species Predation Physical Environment Sea water temperature Etc

Stock and Recruitment Relationship 21

22 Stock Recruitment Relationship Quantitative relationship between the number of parents (t) generation and children (t+1) generation It would be simple if the number is measured at same age in different generation. For example; pink salmon Come back to the original river exactly Come back at 2 years old Easy to count in the river.

23 Stock-Recruitment Curve Theoretical Curve to describe the Parents Generation and Children Generation On the replacement line (45- degree line), the number of t generation and t+1 generation is same Cross point of the S-R curve and replacement line is the equilibrium point, here population does not increase and decrease in long term average. t+1generation t generation

Growth of individuals 34 Growth is another component of stock production. Growth is usually described by using theoretical growth curve. Usually growth curve describe the relationship between age and length. Weight growth curve can be used, but sometimes the weight is converted from length by using the allometric equation.

Von Bertalanffy growth curve 35 Von Bertalanffy growth curve (VBGC) is most popular. Lt : length at age t L∞: asymptotic average maximum body size K : growth rate coefficient t0: hypothetical age which the species has zero length 0 1 ttK t eLL

Total Mortality 44 Total Mortality is the factor reducing the stock. Total Mortality is divided to Natural Mortality and Fishery Mortality (=Yield, Harvest) Usually, only total mortality can be observed from age composition. Natural Mortality can be estimated from various method, and also estimated from various empirical equations. Fishing Mortality is estimated from total mortality and natural mortality. The estimated fishing mortality contains errors in estimating total mortality, and natural mortality.

Index of Mortality 45 Usually mortality is measured by the instantaneous rate. “Instantaneous rate of mortality” is simply called as “mortality”. If you use the percentage of the died individuals to the population at the beginning of the year, it is called “mortality rate”, and is different to “instantaneous rate of mortality” .

Estimation of Total Mortality 52 1. Get the N1, N2, N3, ..., NT or its index, from a same year class. 2. If impossible, and if you can assume the recruit and fishery is stable, use C1, C2, C3, ..., CT from a same year. 3. Calculate ln(Ci) (i=1,...,T) 4. Confirm that it declines monotonously. If not, omit it. It would be affected by gear selectivity. 5. Plot and make linear regression. 6. The coefficient for tangent is –Z.

Empirical Method 1 60 It is very difficult to conduct direct measurement of Natural mortality for each commercial species. No enough data for analysis The range of the fishing effort variation is small Difficult to conduct mark-recapture experiment because of the lack of budget and man-power Many empirical method are proposed Collecting the results of the direct measurements Find some relationship with available parameters

Empirical Method 61 Mainly estimated from Growth curve parameter, Water Temperature, Life history Parameter Longevity, age at Mature etc Results may have large variety. Use Common methods in consensus Compare the results. Parameters used in Hewitt et al. (2007) tm = age at maturity (years) X = a constant taken from the given sources K = von Bertalanffy growth coefficient (per year) tmax = longevity(years) CW∞ = asymptotic maximum carapace width (cm) from VBGC T = grand annual mean of water temperature (degree Celcius) W ∞ = asymptotic maximum weight (g) from VBGCw W = wet weight (g)
