Results of winter flounder inter-reader precision test using randomly selected samples from the 2007 NEFSC spring survey. Otoliths were used for age determinations. (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 readers. Numbers above this diagonal indicate fish which were given higher ages by JB; those below the shaded boxes were given higher ages by GT. Total age frequencies are given by age for both readers. (C) Results summary, indicating GT's results relative to each of JB's ages.
