Advanced Ecosim course

Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) is becoming one of the most widely used multispecies modelling approaches in the aquatic sciences. The free software is a popular tool for both students and professionals and models have been developed for an increasing number of marine and aquatic ecosystems.

The Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) in Oban, UK, offers an advanced course on Ecopath using Ecosim. The course will look at formal fitting procedures for existing EwE models and take participants up to the stage of being able to generate “key” runs for their models. The course is led by Prof. Villy Christensen and Dr Sheila Heymans and will give you a comprehensive introduction to the advanced aspects of fitting time-series to Ecopath with Ecosim models.

What you’ll learn on this Advanced Ecosim Course:

Day 1 (18 August 2015)

  • Refresher on the theory behind Ecosim
  • Automated formal fitting
  • Monte Carlo simulation using Ecosim

Day 2 (19 August 2015)

  • Evaluating results from formal fitting
  • Optimisation of fishing policy
  • Development of “key” runs
