Hi Dick,

My comments apply to any fishery. Because there is a 1-many RELATIONSHIP 
between abundance and fishing mortality (or exploitation rate) then, by 
definition, fishing mortality is not a FUNCTION of abundance ALONE. Therefore 
to define "depensatory exploitation" in terms of the shape of the function 
cannot be generally applicable - because, in general, no such FUNCTION exists.

I agree with you entirely, that understanding how fishermen respond to 
changes in abundance is critical (for a number of applications). 

Regards
Patrick
