EwEugHatcheryPopulationsInEcosim
v1 v2 1 1 == 3.22 Hatchery populations in Ecosim == 2 2 3 Multistanza populations can be designated as hatchery populations, and hatchery production can be varied over time using time forcing functions. To turn off natural reproduction and replace it with a time series of hatchery stocking rates, open the [wiki:EwEugEditMultiStanzaGroups Edit multistanza groups] form for a population from the Ecopath menu, and enter a nonzero value for the hatchery forcing function number. Forcing functions can be sketched using Ecosim ’s [wiki:EwEugForcingFunction Forcing function] form or can be imported using [wiki:EwEugImportTimeSeries Import time series] on the Ecosim menu (set the data type to 2). Note that imported time series must be activated using the [wiki:EwEugTimeSeries Time series] form. After activating the imported time series, check the Forcing function form for the number allocated to your hatchery stocking time series. Note that forcing functions to represent historical changes in stocking rates can be entered via the same csv files as used to set up historical fishing and model fitting scenarios. Enter stocking rates as values relative to the stocking rate of 1.0 assumed for the Ecopath base year.3 Multistanza populations can be designated as hatchery populations, and hatchery production can be varied over time using time forcing functions.

Enter stocking rates as values relative to the stocking rate of 1.0 assumed for the Ecopath base year. 4 4 5 5 Then at each simulation time step, the base recruitment for the population (calculated from Ecopath input parameters) will be multiplied by the current time value for the designated forcing function. A forcing function value of 1.0 corresponds to the stocking rate that would result in the Ecopath base abundance (biomass) entered by the user.
