End-to-end fish model

Project Description

The goal is to model the multi-decadal cycles of sardines and anchovies using an end-to-end model consisting of the ocean physics (ROMS), a nutrient-phytoplankton-zooplankton component (NEMURO), an individual based model of small pelagic fish, and a fishing fleet component.
