Calculates the OFL based on a fixed ratio of FMSY to M multiplied by a current estimate of abundance.
A simple method that tends to outperform many other approaches alarmingly often even when current biomass is relatively poorly known. The low stock crash potential is largely due to the quite large difference between Fmax and FMSY for most stocks.

The TAC is calculated as:
\textrm{TAC} = F_{\textrm{MSY}} A
where F_{\textrm{MSY}} is calculated as \frac{F_\textrm{MSY}}{M} M and A is estimate of current abundance.
The MP variants differ in the assumption of current abundance (see Functions section below)

Fratio
: Requires an estimate of current abundance (i.e [email protected]
)
Fratio4010
: Paired with the 4010 rule that throttles back the OFL to zero at 10 percent of unfished biomass. Requires an estimate of current depletion.
DepF
: Depletion Corrected Fratio: the Fratio MP with a harvest control
rule that reduces F according to the production curve given an estimate of current
stock depletion (madeup for this package).
Fratio_CC
: Current abundance is estimated using average catch and estimate of F from an agebased catch curve
Fratio_ML
: Current abundance is estimated using average catch and estimate of F from mean lengths
