Quantifying the Accuracy of Shark Bycatch Estimations in Tuna Purse Seine Fisheries

Scientists were strategically positioned during fishing sets in order to establish a reference count of captured sharks during commercial fishing trips and compared them to observer and electronic monitoring counts in the Pacific.

Ensemble Random Forests as a Tool for Modeling Rare Occurrences

Through simulation, we show that ERFs outperform Random Forest with and without down-sampling, as well as with the synthetic minority over-sampling technique, for highly class imbalanced to balanced datasets.

Abundance of Neglected Fishing Gear in the Hawaii-Based Pelagic Longline Fishery Grounds

We study the abundance of derelict fishing gear (DFG) accumulating in zones coinciding with the fishing grounds of the Hawai’i-based pelagic longline fishery with results that suggest that the relative abundance of DFG has declined ~66% from 2008–2016.
