Results of the 2016 haddock ageing exchange using samples from the first and second quarters of the 2015 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.
