A key consideration in the simulation projection framework to be used to test Candidate Management Procedures for OMP 17 are alternative hypotheses of the proportion of 1-year-old sardine that move from the west coast to the south coast each year. (The proportion of older sardine that move is linked to the proportion of 1-year-olds which move.) This document outlines the movement hypotheses considered thus far based on results at the joint posterior mode of de Moor and Butterworth (2016) and de Moor (2016).
