rec_BH: The Beverton-Holt stock recruitment function

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/calc_recruits.R

Description

Calculates the number of recruits as given by the Beverton-Holt stock recruitment function.

Usage

1
rec_BH(SSB, rec_args)

Arguments

SSB

A numeric value representing the Spawning Stock Biomass (SSB) of a given species (g).

rec_args

A list object of length nfish, with each element in the list including a value of a and b for each species. a is a positive numeric value, often referred to as the density-independent parameter. The default is 1. b is a positive numeric value, often referred to as the density-dependent parameter. The default is 0.001.

Details

The Beverton-Holt stock recruitment function is defined as a*(SSB/1e9))/(1+b*(SSB/1e9)).

Value

A numeric value representing the number of recruits of a given species.
