An MP that uses Martell and Froese (2012) method for estimating MSY to determine the OFL. Since their approach estimates stock trajectories based on catches and a rule for intrinsic rate of increase it also returns depletion. Given their surplus production model predicts K, r and depletion it is straighforward to calculate the OFL based on the Schaefer productivity curve.

The TAC is calculated as:

*\textrm{TAC} = D K \frac{r}{2}*

where *D* is depletion, *K* is unfished biomass, and *r* is
intrinsic rate of increasase, all estimated internally by the method based
on trends in the catch data and life-history information.

Requires the assumption that catch is proportional to abundance, and a catch time-series from the beginning of exploitation.

Occasionally the rule that limits r and K ranges does not allow r-K pairs to be found that lead to the depletion inferred by the catch trajectories. In this case this method widens the search.
