This chapter could occupy several different places in this book as it is linked to both dead recovery models and continuous models. The latter have already been mentioned in earlier chapters where natural and exploitation mortalities are modeled using Poisson processes with instantaneous rates. The chapter begins with laying out the general theory for continuous processes and then applying it to previous dead recovery models with extensions such as a nonparametric version with individual recovery times, and then allowing for a truncated study or using grouped recovery data. Several models are given such as using grouped releases and single recoveries, allowing for tag loss, incorporating age dependence, and adding catch–effort data to the model.
