Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new('OM', Stock, Fleet, Obs, Imp).

MPA slot

Each row should contain year index (e.g 10 for 10th historical year) followed by fraction of area closed to fishing for each area. i.e. each row represents a change and the number of columns is nareas + 1. The spatial closures are assumed to remain in place for the future projections unless changed by a MP. Default (if left blank) is all areas are open to fishing in historical period.
