Surplus Production Models

Surplus-production models (production models) were the first fishery models to consider all four forces of population dynamics (eqn [1]) together with density dependence. In contrast to yield-per-recruit or early catch-age models, the population is modeled as persisting across years and generations by means of recruitment. Production models are not detailed: the population is considered an undifferentiated biomass, without age structure, and dynamic forces are combined into few parameters.
