Design and Analysis of Statistically Sound Catch Sampling Programmes is an applied statistical methods course, concerned almost exclusively with the design of commercial fishery data collection based on statistical sampling schemes. The course examines problems of applying sampling methods, particularly the principles of sample selection and basic estimation, using case studies to demonstrate practical application.
The course is at a moderately advanced statistical level, and while it will not develop the mathematical aspects of sampling theory, it will include statistical notation. Attendees should be comfortable with introductory -level statistical concepts regarding sampling designs.
