Natural mortality (M) estimates by method

Legend color indicate inputs used by each method.
Downloadable R object contains paramter inputs, estimted M point estimates, and age-specific M values.

Method density and weights

When no uncertainty is expressed, point estimates with weights are shown
When uncertainty is expressed, the distribution of each method is given, with its frequency (determined by the weighting) plotted on the y-axis

Composite natural mortality

Blue vertical line indicates median value

First composite M object is based on the number of specified samples

Second composite M object is based on th adjusted bandwidth
