    98 How to run the MSE 
    99  
    100 ==== Set Quotas ==== 
    101   The MSE is capable of setting quotas by two methods. 
    102  
    103  1. Target fishing mortality rates. Target fishing mortalities are set via the '''Input regulatory '''> '''Target fishing mortality''' dialogue then setting biomass limit, biomass base and F max. values for individual groups. 
    104  1. Fixed escapement. Fixed escapement values are set via the '''Input regulatory '''> '''Fixed escapement''' dialogue. 
    105  
    106   If fixed escapement is provided then the yearly quotas will be calculated as the biomass greater than the fixed escapement. Otherwise quotas will be calculated from the target fishing mortality rates. 
    107  
    108 ==== Set regulatory option ==== 
    109   Implemented of the quota is set via the '''Input regulatory''' > '''Regulatory options''' dialogue. Four options are provided 
    110  
    111  1. Not Used. No quota regulation will be imposed on this fleet. 
    112  1. Weakest stock + discards quota. If catch on any group exceeds its quota then effort will be limited at that level. 
    113  1. Strongest stock. If catch of the group with the maximum effort exceeds its quota then effort will be limited. Catch in excess of the quota is discarded and will have a discard mortality set via  '''Input data''' > '''Fishery '''> '''Discard mortality rate'''. 
    114  1. Selective fishing quota. If catch of the group with the maximum effort exceeds its quota then effort is limited. Catch in excess of quota will not be included in the fishing mortality and will be assumed to have a 100% discard survival rate. 
    115  
    116 ==== Run the MSE ==== 
    117   The MSE is capable of running in three different modes. 
    118  
    119  1. Ecosim effort use regulatory options. Uses fishing effort from the currently loaded Ecosim scenario then regulates effort according to the regulatory options selected. This option will only reduce the effort if catches exceed the quota. You may need to increase the Ecosim effort to see any effect of this option. Also if catches go to zero this option will keep effort at the Ecosim input levels. It will never reduce the effort because there was no catch. 
    120  1. Predict effort use regulatory options. Fishing effort will be predicted based on the parameters set in the '''Fleet size dynamics''' form then fishing effort will be regulated according to the regulatory options selected. 
    121  1. Evaluating the currently load Ecosim scenario. No attempt is made to regulate the fishery this mode is used to evaluate the current Ecosim scenario. 
    122  
    123 ==== Setting of Target Fishing Mortalities ==== 
    124 Target Fishing Mortality parameters are set to default values the first time a model is loaded. Biomass limit = 10% of Ecopath biomass, Biomass base = 40% of Ecopath biomass and F. max = fishing mortality rates calculated from the Ecopath inputs.  The MSY(Maximum Sustainable Yield) search can be used to compute values for the Target Fishing Mortality parameters. When the MSY is run it will overwrite the current parameters of the Target Fishing Mortality. The MSY search is accessible via the '''Input reference level''' > '''MSY''' dialogue. 
    125  
    126 == '''Inputs''' == 
    127  * '''Assessments''' Sets inputs use for the perturbation of variables. 
    128    * '''Groups''' 
    129      * '''CV''' Coefficient of variation used for perturbation of biomass. 
    130    * '''Fleets''' 
    131      * '''CV''' Coefficient of variation used for perturbation of effort. 
    132      * '''Annual increase in catchability''' Amount catchability will increase each year. 
    133  
    134  * '''Input reference levels''' Sets reference levels lines that appear on plots and as percentage values above and below reference in the MSE Results grid. 
    135    * '''MSY''' Uses the results a Maximum Sustainable Yield search to set Biomass limit, Biomass base and F max. for the target fishing mortalities. 
    136    * '''Group''' Sets reference levels that appear on group plots and in results grids. 
    137      * '''Biomass lower''' Lower biomass limit. 
    138      * '''Biomass upper''' Upper biomass limit 
    139      * '''Catch lower''' Lower catch limit on a group. 
    140      * '''Catch upper''' Upper catch limit on a group. 
    141    * '''Fleet '''Sets reference levels that appear on fleet plots and in results grids.

    143      * '''Catch upper''' Upper catch limit by a fleet. 
    144      * '''Effort lower '''Upper effort limit by a fleet. 
    145      * '''Effort upper''' Upper effort limit by a fleet. 
    146  
    147  * '''Input regulatory''' Sets inputs used for the fisheries regulations. 
    148    * '''Regulatory option''' Sets how the effort of a fleet will be regulated. 
    149      * '''Not used''' No regulation will be used for this fleet. 
    150      * '''Weakest Stock quota'''  Effort is regulated if any catch (landings + discards) on a group exceeds its quota. 
    151      * '''Strongest stock + discards quota''' Effort is regulated if landings on the strongest stock exceed the quota. Catches that exceed the quota are discarded. 
    152      * '''Selective fishing quota''' Effort is regulated if landings on the strongest stock exceed the quota. 
    153    * '''Fleet Quotas''' Quota by group and fleet used to compute a fleets share of the quota on a group. 
    154    * '''Target fishing mortality''' Sets parameters for target fishing mortality. Biomass limit, Biomass base and F max. 
    155    * '''Fixed escapement''' Sets fixed escapement biomass of a group. If this value is non zero the quota for the year is computed as [estimated biomass] - [fix escapement] instead of using the target fishing mortality parameters. 
    156  
    157  * '''Input effort tracking''' Sets weights used when evaluating current Ecosim scenario. 
    158    * '''Fleet weights''' Sets the weight given to a fleet when calculating fishing mortality.

    163      * '''Ecosim effort use regulatory options''' Ecosim is run using effort from the current scenario. The fishing effort is then regulated according to the target fishing mortality and the options selected in the '''Regulatory options''' dialogue. 
    164      * '''Predict effort use regulatory options''' Fishing effort for the year is predicted using the Ecosim Fleet/effort dynamics model. The fishing quota for each year is then set via the target fishing mortality. The fishing effort is then regulated according to the options selected in the '''Regulatory options''' dialogue. 
    165      * '''Ecosim effort no regulations(evaluates current scenario) '''Ecosim is run using effort from the current scenario. No attempt is made to regulate the fishing effort. This option is used to evaluate the current Ecosim scenario.

    169      * '''Catch/estimated biomass''' Fishing mortality is estimated using a perturbed biomass then effort is updated using the varied fishing mortality. 
    170      * '''Direct exploitation''' Fishing mortality is computed directly from the predicted Ecosim catch and biomass then perturbed and used to update effort. 
    171      * '''Exact biomass known''' Fishing mortality is computed directly from the predicted Ecosim catch and biomass. Effort is then update with the predicted fishing mortalities and perturbed before use.

    174  
    175 == FAQ == 
    176  * Output values do not appear to vary across runs. 
    177    * Check the Assessment CV values. If they are all zero then there will be no variation in the output. 
    178    * If you have selected 'Ecosim effort use regulatory options' for the MSE run the variation of inputs will only come into effect if the quota is exceeded. 
    179  * Quotas never seems to come into effect.
