Cusk, Brosme brosme
Sarah Emery (SE) has been working with Cusk since 2020. This is the first time NOAA has aged this species. Baked and sectioned otoliths are viewed with reflected light.
In tests where agreement is below 90%, bias indicates either the P-value of a symmetry test or ‘n/s’ (test not significant at the α = 0.05 level). The Evans & Hoenig test was used to test bias starting 1/2022.
