Installing FishStatJ v4.01.7 (Oct 2021)

  1. Download FishStatJ

In order to open the new 2021 workspace you need to install the latest version of FishStatJ.

When upgrading from an older version, we suggest to delete the old program first: delete the C:\FishStatJ folder using Windows Explorer.

Workspaces are downloaded directly from within the FishStatJ application menu Manage workspaces. Select the Workspace (one at the time) that you are interested in and click on Download to install it locally. When we publish a new workspace, you will see it available for download (in red) in the Workspace manager list.
