CAPAM Growth Workshop

How do fish grow? Five students and postdoctoral researchers from the Punt lab recently attended the latest Center for the Advancement of Population Assessment Methodology (CAPAM) workshop on somatic growth in sunny La Jolla, California. In total nine students and post doctoral researchers from the University of Washington spent five days learning about the theory, estimation, and application of somatic fish growth. Sessions were attended on site by over 100 fishery researchers from around the world and over 15 participants online. UW students were featured in three presentations and Dr. André Punt was featured with a keynote address titled: “Specification and estimation: growth determination from size increment data as used in size-structured models.”
