## fishing

### Description

The fishing data is adapted from Zuur, Hilbe and Ieno (2013) to determine
whether the data appears to be generated from more than one generating mechanism.
The data are originally adapted from Bailey et al. (2008) who were interested in
how certain deep-sea fish populations were impacted when commercial fishing
began in locations with deeper water than in previous years. Given that there
are 147 sites that were researched, the model is of (1) the total number of fish
counted per site (totabund); ( 2) on the mean water depth per site (meandepth);
(3) adjusted by the area of the site (sweptarea); (4) the log of which is the
model offset.

### Usage

`data(fishing)`

### Format

A data frame with 147 observations on the following variables.

`totabund`

total fish counted per site

`meandepth`

mean water depth per site

`sweptarea`

adjusted area of site

`density`

folage density index

`site`

catch site

`year`

1977-2002

`period`

0=1977-1989; 1=2000+

### Details

fishing is saved as a data frame.
Count models use totabund as response variable. Counts start at 2
