 This is a half-day course for fisheries professionals and students interested in fisheries-specific analysis.  This introductory-to-intermediate course will familiarize participants with popular data wrangling (tidyR and dplyr) and plotting (ggplot2) packages in R.  We will cover age comparisons, size structure, weight-length relationships, condition, length-at-age, mortality, and individual growth through coding exercises.  Participants in the course should be familiar with some of R basics like importing data, loading libraries, and basic mathematical operations. Participants should come to the course with R and RStudio installed on a laptop.  

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Beginner - Intermediate

FEES: Students $25; Professionals $50. Sign-up on registration form; lunch is on your own.
