Single-species size-spectrum simulator
This applet simulates the size distribution of a single species (blue) subjected to fishing (red). The filled area is the mature individuals and the colour whether recruitment is high (green) or low (red). The species is characterized by the asymptotic (maximum) size (W∞) and a set of non-dimensional parameters.
The model is based on metabolic scaling at the level of the individual. The full set of assumptions behind the model are documented in Andersen and Beyer (2013).
