Conditioning OMs with Data

In this section we demonstrate how the Observation model in an operating model can be conditioned with real data.

For conditioning the population dynamics in the operating model, see the Rapid Conditioning Model.

Create Example OM and Real Data

First we create an operating model using example Stock, Fleet, Obs, and Imp objects. As it’s only an example, we will set only 4 simulations:

OM <- new('OM', Albacore, Generic_IncE, Generic_Obs, Perfect_Imp, nsim=4)

Then we create an example of our ‘real’ fishery data (in this case data simulated from a different OM):

RealData <- SimulatedData
