Fmin 
The minimum fishing mortality rate that is derived from the catchcurve (interval censor). 
The TAC is calculated as:
\textrm{TAC} = A F_{\textrm{max}}
where A is (vulnerable) stock abundance, and F_{\textrm{max}} is calculated as:
F_{\textrm{max}} = \frac{0.6K}{0.67L_c/L_∞}
where K is the von Bertalanffy growth coefficient, L_c is the length at first capture, and L_∞ is the von Bertalanffy asymptotic length
Abundance (A) is either assumed known (BK
) or estimated (BK_CC
and BK_ML
):
A = \frac{\bar{C}}{≤ft(1e^{F}\right)}
where \bar{C} is the mean catch, and F is estimated. See Functions section below for the estimation of F.

Note that the BeddingtonKirkwood method is designed to estimate F_\textrm{max}, that is, the fishing mortality that produces the maximum yield assuming constant recruitment independent of spawning biomass.
Beddington and Kirkwood (2005) recommend estimating F using other methods (e.g a catch curve) and comparing the estimated F to the estimated F_\textrm{max} and adjusting exploitation accordingly. These MPs have not been implemented that way.
