Title LMLP_fitting_code_Honsey_et_al_Ecol_Apps
Downloaded 15 times
Description This file contains example R code for estimating age-at-maturity and other life history parameters from length-at-age using a Lester biphasic growth model. The model is fit using a profile likelihood approach. This code corresponds with the Ecological Applications article by Honsey et al. entitled "Accurate estimates of age-at-maturity from the growth trajectories of fishes and other ectotherms".

Title LMLP_simulations_Honsey_et_al_Ecol_Apps
Downloaded 8 times
Description This file contains example code for running simulations to determine the data quality requirements and estimate reliability of the LMLP algorithm as described in the Ecological Applications article by Honsey et al. entitled "Accurate estimates of age-at-maturity from the growth trajectories of fishes and other ectotherms". In this file, growth parameters and sample sizes-at-age are loosely based on walleye Sander vitreus (age-at-maturity = 5 yrs, immature growth intercept = 100 mm, immature growth slope = 50 mm/yr). See Honsey et al. (main text and supplemental file) for details.

Title Haddock_data_Honsey_et_al_Ecol_Apps
Downloaded 8 times
Description These data describe haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) age (yr), length (cm), sex, and maturity during spring 2015 in the Gulf of Maine. These data were collected as part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Northeast Fisheries Science Center’s bottom trawl surveys (data provided by Mike Palmer, NOAA).

Title Skate_data_Honsey_et_al_Ecol_Apps
Downloaded 6 times
Description These data describe the sex, age (yr), total length (cm), and maturity of Alaska skate (Bathyraja parmifera) taken from the eastern Bering Sea from 2003-2005. These data were collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Fisheries groundfish trawl surveys (2003-2004) and by the North Pacific Groundfish Observer Program on flatfish trawlers and Pacific cod longline vessels (2004-2005). These data were provided by Beth Matta (NOAA).
