Description The research in this Ph.D. dissertation focuses on the relationship between fishery-dependent catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) and abundance and how its use when assessing and managing fisheries may be affected by some of its shortcomings. CPUE data are often used to provide information on the historical and current stock size, but changes in CPUE may not be proportional to abundance. Hyperstability is when CPUE declines slower than abundance and can result in optimistic estimates of abundance... Thesis (Ph.D.)--University of Washington, 2013
