|Title:||Lake fish population estimates and mixing properties|
|Speaker:||Jana Rodriguez Hertz, IMERL, Uruguay|
|A mark-and-recapture method of lake fish population estimate consists in collecting and tagging a random sample of, for instance, 1000 fish, and counting the tagged fish in a second random capture, after releasing and allowing a period of mixing. A number of, for instance, 10 tagged fish would give an estimate of 100,000 fish in the lake. Is this a good estimate? We will see how this depends on the way the fish get mixed.|
