Jackson State University Trip Report

Dr. Ralf Riedel was the main instructor for this course. He taught us the majority of the information. He taught us how to calculate Gear Selectivity and Individual Fish Growth using "The von Bertalanffy Growth Model, Gulland-Holt Method, Ford-Walford Method, Non-Linear Models, Growth in Weight Method, and The Gompertz Function." Dr. Ambrose Jearld, also, lectured to the class about "Scale, Otolith and Spine Structure". The other people who made lectured presentations with PowerPoint were Dr. Chris Legault, Dr. Paul Rago, and Dr. John Brodziak. My other question was for Dr. Chris Legault. He was explaining "Stock and Recruitment'.
