The FRDC is pleased to host the Stock Assessment Toolbox as a free resource to stock assessment analysts. The Toolbox only compiles the package specifications and locations into a single place, and we acknowledge the huge investment that developers from all over the world have made to develop the packages and make them freely available.  We attempt to help you choose a package, but then ask that you use the resources set up by the developer. This means we are a conduit to a package, rather than housing the package.

The developers and funding agencies do not warrant that the information in this web-based Toolbox is free from errors or omissions. The developers do not accept any form of liability, be it contractual, tortious, or otherwise, for the contents of these web sites or for any consequences arising from its use or any reliance placed upon it. The information, opinions and advice contained in this web site may not relate, or be relevant, to an analysts’ particular circumstances. Opinions expressed by the authors regarding the packages are the individual opinions expressed by those persons and are not necessarily those of the publisher, research provider or the funding agency.

The Toolbox is developed for a stock assessment scientist with moderate to excellent expertise. We do not warrant that our opinions suit your needs, so you should apply discretion in the Toolbox’s use.

You are free to use the Toolbox and download the various resources therein. However, you may not, without written consent, mirror or resell any elements of the Toolbox.

Be mindful that we may update these Terms in this Disclaimer.
