ABSTRACT:
Classical methods for assessing harvested fish populations, based on age
structure population models, were originally quite rigid and were not well
adapted for accommodating the extent of biological change (e.g., dramatic
changes in growth or predatory mortality) commonly seen in the Great Lakes.
Modern advances have blurred the distinction between assessment and
detailed modeling of these biological changes. The power and flexibility of
these new approaches will be illustrated with examples of assessments that
have recently been applied to lake trout, whitefish, chinook salmon, yellow
perch, and forage fish complexes in the Great Lakes.
