My work involves understanding if and how natural mortality can influence fish stock estimates and catch advice.
The aim is to assess the degree of bias in stock assessment models, reference points, catch advice,
and management strategies that incorrect values of natural mortality might impose. Results from this can be used to devise strategies for
minimizing any bias that might be occurring.
