Welcome to the Population Estimation learning module developed at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center. The goal of this module is to introduce the concept of population estimation and then provide five examples using different species to describe the various methods AFSC scientists use to estimate population sizes.

Teachers: You can use this to apply basic math or statistical concepts to your students. Contact us for ideas or suggestions.
