One of the assessment models for Iberian sardine (Sardina pilchardus) to be considered as part of work package 7 of the EU-project Sardine Dynamics and Stock Structure in the North-East Atlantic (SARDYN), is that of a Bayesian state-space model. This model, based on the one developed for the North East Atlantic mackerel population (Cunningham 2002), explicitly models the migration of the sardine between different areas during the year and incorporates, where possible, new data resulting from other SARDYN work packages. This model is used to evaluate an initial set of alternative hypotheses of stock-structure and migration.
