Geostatistics for Estimating Fish Abundance
by J. Rivoirard

Geostatistics for Estimating Fish Abundance describes the fundamentals of geostatistics in terms more familiar to life-scientists, and uses case studies on seven commercially important fish stocks to demonstrate its application to fisheries survey data.

Comprehensive and practical advice is given on how this new method can be used to estimate the abundance (with an appropriate measure of precision) of fish stocks worldwide.
