  • Description:
    Information about the age structure of a fish stock is important for accurate stock assessment. Age data are used to estimate fish growth and mortality rates and to generate age structured stock assessment models. Because inaccurate age data can lead to the over or under harvesting of an exploited fish stock, accurate age data are critical to determining appropriate harvest and management strategies. To examine and improve the accuracy of age data, a new facility for the radiometric ageing of marine organisms has been established as part of the Age and Growth Task of the Resource Ecology and FisheriesManagement (REFM) Division at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC).
