This software is the research tool for investigation of secondary production regularity in marine ecosystems. Longterm and seasonal dynamics of main biotical components, especially fish stocks are simulated on the trophodynamic approah basis.

Driving effect includes natural (water temperature and salinity, river inflow, primary production, allochtonous organic substance loading) and antrogenic ( fish catches and comb jelly predators invasion) factors.

The model is developed for system of two coupled seas (Black and Azov seas), however adaptation for any ecosystem case is possible.

Users should not publish sections of the programme or its documentation without informing FAO first and asking permission.
