Results of cod inter-reader precision test
against randomly selected samples from the first quarter of the 2010 NEFSC commercial samples (Gulf of Maine stock only).
(A) Agreement plot, showing the ages attained by each reader. A small amount of noise was added to the data to improve visibility of overlapping data points. (B) Age-frequency table, showing each reader's ages.
Numbers in the shaded boxes indicate agreement between the two ages. Numbers above this diagonal indicate fish which were given higher ages by ER; those below the shaded boxes were given higher ages by NS. Total age frequencies are given by age for both readers. (C) Results summary, indicating NS's results
relative to each of ER's ages.
