    • ...An alternative is to use methods that rely on length composition and catch data (Jones 1979, 1984; Schnute and Fournier 1980; Pauly and David 1980; Pauly 1987; Lai and Gallucci 1988; Fournier et al...

    • ...Here this is treated as a model identification problem (sensu Akaike 1974), not as a problem of estimation (as in Roa and Ernst 1996 and Laslett, Eveson, and Polachek 2004) or hypothesis testing (Fournier, Hampton, and Sibert 1990)...
    • ...In the first version the number of normal components in each LFD was fixed by results of the frequentist test of hypothesis based on the likelihood ratio test (MUL-TIFAN, Fournier, Hampton, and Sibert 1990), in spite of the fact that, for the case of the number of components in mixtures, the likelihood ratio test does not apply because the necessary regularity conditions are not met (Lo, Mendel, and Rubin 2001)...

    • ...In recent years a number of modern software package are currently available to decompose a time series of size-frequency data into age classes and to estimate von Bertalanffy growth parameters, such as MIX (MacDonald and Green 1990), MULTIFAN (Fournier et al. 1990) and the FiSAT package (Gayanilo et al. 1988)...
