SEAFDEC/TD organized the “Regional Training Course on Data-Limited Fish Stock Assessments Using R-Statistical Program” from 6 to 10 August 2023 in SEAFDEC/TD, Samut Prakan, Thailand. The training aims to encourage knowledge and skills on fish population dynamics and stock assessment based on the R-Statistical program. Twenty-seven participants who are fishery officers and/or researchers from ASEAN Member States (AMSs), TD, and MFRDMD attended this training. In the end, all participants were expected to improve their knowledge of the data-limited stock assessment method.
