Computer aids in fisheries management Adaptive research - Test of the CEDA Program on the Catch and Effort Data Series, Turks and Caicos Islands.
Available catch and effort data for the Turks and Caicos Islands lobster fishery were entered into a database and the CEDA package provided by MRAG Ltd was used to analyse it. Observations on the CEDA package are listed and the results are presented in an attached paper by P.A.H. Medley, C.H. Ninnes and S. Raven. It is concluded that the package appears to be effective in obtaining an estimate of the population size at the beginning of each season.
