These functions allow you to get or set the gear parameters stored in a MizerParams object. These are used by setFishing() to set up the selectivity and catchability and thus together with the fishing effort determine the fishing mortality.


gear_params(params) <- value



A MizerParams object


A data frame with the gear parameters.


The gear_params data has one row for each gear-species pair and one column for each parameter that determines how that gear interacts with that species. For the details see setFishing().

If you change a gear parameter, this will be used to recalculate the selectivity and catchability arrays by calling setFishing(), unless you have protected these with comments.
