Summary: A workshop on spatial statistical techniques met for 4 days in Brest, France. The purpose was to evaluate statistical techniques recently introduced in fisheries research for mapping and assessing the resources after taking into account their spatial dispersion patterns. A knowledge of the location of the sampling units is required. These techniques present interesting perspectives for optimising the sampling design during sampling operations, for correcting possible biases in sampling schemes that cannot be randomly designed, and for analyzing the spatial dispersion of marine organisms and understanding the factors that determine these dispersions.
