Results of the 2010 haddock ageing exchange using randomly selected samples from the first and second quarters of the 2009 NEFSC commercial samples. (A) Agreement plot, showing the ages attained by the Canadian age reader versus the ages attained by the U.S. age 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 the U.S. age reader; those below the shaded boxes were given higher ages by the Canadian age reader. Total age frequencies are given by age for both readers. (C) Results summary, indicating results for the Canadian reader relative to each age for the U.S. reader.

    *There is a new Canadian age reader this year, who is listed first. Despite this, there is no intent to imply that either reader's ages are expected to be more reliable.
