CAPAM Growth Workshop was a success!

Participants of CAPAM Growth Workshop at Scripps Institute of Oceanography - La Jolla, California

The Center for the Advancement of Population Assessment Methodology (CAPAM) hosted a technical workshop on Growth: theory, estimation, and application in fishery stock assessment models in La Jolla, CA, USA from November 3-7, 2014. Sessions were attended on site by over 100 fishery researchers from around the world and over 15 participants online. One of those participants, Dr. Andre Punt, Director of the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, University of Washington remarked:

“I consider these CAPAM workshops to be my top priority to get students working in population dynamics to attend. The stock assessment-related research that I saw over only two days exceeded what I would expect to see at AMSS or AFS.”
