Evaluation of Schaefer's production model

Srinath, M (2002) Evaluation of Schaefer's production model. Indian Journal of fisheries, 49 (4). pp. 361-368.



Schaefer's production model is one of the most widely used surplus production models employed in fish stock assessment. This model leads to estimation of the management reference points, namely, the Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) and the corresponding optimal fishing effort (fMSY). In this paper, the performance of the process error estimators of the parameters of the two nonequilibrium formulations of the Schaefer's production model in the presence of different magnitudes of the observation and process errors are investigated. The choice of the appropriate formulation vis-a-vis the estimates of the parameters and the management reference points is also discussed.
