v5 v6 3 3 Production refers to the elaboration of tissue (whether it survives or not) by a group over the period considered, expressed in whatever currency has been selected. Total mortality, under the condition assumed for the construction of massbalance models, equal to production over biomass (Allen, 1971). Therefore, one can use estimates of total mortality (''Z'') as input values for the production over biomass ratio (''P/B'') in Ecopath models. Some examples of how to obtain ''P/B ''values is given below. 4 4 5 Even if the parameter is labelled ‘production/biomass’ in EwE, what should be entered is actually the mortality rate. An example, if you have a juvenile group and use a bioenergetic model to calculate the production, you should subtract the amount that is recruited to the adult group from the production in order to the actual mortality, which is what Ecosim needs to work with. Production over biomass is entered on the [[Basic input.htmBasic input]] form. See [[Mortality coefficients.htmMortality coefficients]] and [[Predation mortality.htmPredation mortality]] for description of Ecopath’s estimates of different mortality components in the system.5 Even if the parameter is labelled 'production/biomass' in EwE, what should be entered is actually the mortality rate.
