Fisheries surveys to estimate the abundance of populations have become a pillar in providing fishery-independent data to determine the status of fish stocks and monitor ecosystems. Since the early 1990s, geostatistics has been used for designing sampling at sea and estimating the precision of estimates of global population biom abun- dance (ICES, 1993; Rivoirard et al., 2000). Now, the ecosystem approach to fisheries management calls for methods that deal explicitly with spatial issues. In effect, the spatial management of human activities and/or the conservation of particular habitats require precise distribution maps of resources at various stages in their life cycle. Geo- statistics offers a range of solutions for mappig and characterizing different aspects of spatial distributions. On more ecological grounds, geostatistics is also useful for modeling habitats and understanding the ecology of spatial distributions. The varied r.....
