IFOP scientists who traveled to the Scandinavian country are Dr. Carlos Montenegro, Alejandro Yañez and María José Zuniga
Between 2 and 6 November, the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) in Copenhagen, Denmark, advanced stock assessment course will be held using the programming platform ADMB
The course aims to guide participants in developing stock assessment models, to assess the biomass of the species more accurately
Dr. Montenegro, referred to his participation in the activity “as an excellent alternative to acquire expertise in advanced modeling of stocks of marine populations, using more realistic approaches that commonly used, incorporating process uncertainty, plus uncertainty observation in the process of statistical inference. Besides modeling platform it is quite flexible, allowing accommodate classical and Bayesian inference in which the researcher can be incorporated into the modeling process, previous experience. ”
Carlos Patricio Silva Montenegro , is Technologist Marine Resources, Industrial Management Engineering, Master in Statistics and Ph.D. candidate in Statistics at the University of São Paulo.
His research interests include statistical modeling, particularly in fisheries applications of generalized linear mixed-effects models, state-space models and geostatistics.
He has served as an evaluator of stocks of demersal crustaceans in the last 10 years and as head of the monitoring program of these fisheries in the past. He is currently head of the Department of Fisheries Assessment Fisheries Research Division IFOP.
Alejandro Rubio Yañez , is a marine biologist at the University of Concepción and candidate for Master of mention Fisheries Science from the same institution, developing his thesis in biological reference points hake. A year ago he works in the area of stock assessment crab and king crab in FIFG and its areas of interest include stock assessment, generalized linear models and state-space models.
María José Zuñiga , is a biologist Marina, Master of Science in Fisheries, University of Concepción.
