1. Read Experimental Analysis of a Reduced Daily Bluegill Limit in Minnesota (Jacobson, 2005) and be prepared to discuss the following items in class.
    • What is the described relationship between fishing effort and size-at-maturity and size of Bluegills?
    • What hypothesis led to this study?
    • What bag limit was used? How did the author arrive at this value?
    • Describe the experimental setup? What are the response variables?
    • What was the specific test of significance in this experiment?
    • Interpret the results in Figure 1, Table 3, and Table 4.
    • Why did the bag limits “work” in some lakes but not others?
    • What else does the author want to know about anglers to set more reduced bag limits?
    • What are (at least three) take home messages from this reading?
