A Bayesian Māui dolphin population model was developed integrating information from genetic “mark-recapture” and population size estimates. Model runs incorporated estimates of historical annual deaths from commercial fisheries and toxoplasmosis obtained from a separate spatial risk assessment. These models were then used to simulate the effects of estimated threat-specific mortality rates on future population growth.
