MSY strange behaviour

Reported by: viliyc Owned by:

Component: MSY Version: 6.6 beta
Severity: minor Keywords:


I was checking the MSY calculations in Ecosim, and noticed some very strange behavior on the simple model I used for the purpose: Anchovy Bay (attached)

In the model Cod has an F of 0.15/year, but when running the MSY search the full compensation stops at 0.04 and crashes the cod. See screenshot. They then bounce briefly back at an F around 0.15 but crashes again. I’ve tried to make long-term (500 years) run in Ecosim where I gradually increase F from 0 to 0.15 and the model behaves absolutely reasonable in that case. The stationary fmsy is probably ok (around 0.09). I cannot figure out what is going on, but it is definitely not right. Worrisome as I have to run a bunch of models to get fmsy with short deadline.

Would you look into is, asap, please

Chatted with Carl, he thought it was dynamic instability (which it indeed looked like) caused by foraging time adjustment. I couldn’t get it to show dynamic instability in Ecosim, but the problem disappeared when foraging time adjustment was set to 0 for all but marine mammals.
