JakeOmatic Version 2.42
This fish survey analysis program is designed for fishery professionals to analyze data typically gathered during routine surveys. Common analyses such as the generation of length frequency histograms, population estimates, biomass estimates, relative weight, and relative stock density are all provided. The program is modular, with each module capable of analyzing commonly acquired fishery data. The three primary functions of the program are to analyze:
- Lake survey data (acquired with gill nets, electrofishing, traps, etc.)
- Stream survey data (2 pass removal population estimation)
- River/Lake survey data (mark-recapture population estimation)
The installer will place the program and a support folder in your program files folder on your computer that contains a JakeOmatic Manual. This manual should be consulted for more details on the program.

WaTSS Version 3.0
Inexpensive remote temperature loggers have been available for several decades, but interpreting the resulting data has been hampered by the lack of user-friendly software. My hope is that this program can serve as a developing platform to make common analyses of temperature data readily available to managers and researchers alike. This Water Temperature Summary Software currently calculates a raft of commonly used temperature metrics including average daily, weekly, monthly, and rolling average temperatures, as well as maximum temperatures, accumulated degree days, maximum weekly maximum temperature (MWMT) and maximum 30-day average temperature all over user specified ranges. Filtered data can be exported in ASCII text format for import into other software for graphing purposes. Please read the manual
for more details.

Fish Telemetry Analysis Program
This is companion software for Chapter 14 in the AFS book "Analysis and Interpretation of Freshwater Fisheries Data." This program performs three basic functions that are commonly used in the analysis of fish telemetry data.
- Calculates the distance from fish locations to the nearest shoreline.
- Determines if the distribution of fish locations are random (and provides a means to generate a distribution of the test statistic so that a P-value can be assessed).
- Evaluates if habitat selection is occurring, and whether fish are selecting for habitat types in a similar fashion.
- Calculates selection ratios for various habitat types.
The installer will place the program and a data folder on your computer that contains a manual. This manual should be consulted for more details on the program and its operation.

QStrap Version 3.1
Evaluating taxonomic relationships with microsatellite or AFLP non-diagnostic markers has generated a need for more complex analysis software to evaluate population structure with genotype data. One program that has seen increasing popularity for making these determinations is Program STRUCTURE. While the program easily generates average admixture coefficients (q) to characterize levels of admixture, it does not provide confidence intervals around those values to yield insight into the precision of the estimated q. QStrap uses the estimated q values from STRUCTURE runs to bootstrap confidence intervals around admixture values. The installer will place the program and a support folder in your Program Files folder that contains a QStrap Manual. This manual should be consulted for details on the program and installation.
