Definition of Yield-per-recruit analysis

Yield-per-recruit analysis Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
Fishery Glossary
Analysis of how growth, natural mortality, and fishing interact to determine the best size of animals at which to start fishing them, and the most appropriate level of fishing mortality. The Yield-per-recruit models do not consider the possibility of changes in recruitment (and reproductive capacity) due to change in stock size. They also do not deal with environmental impacts.
