```#' Calculate growth
#'
#' @description Calculates the number of individuals of each species in each length class for the next time step.
#' @param N A matrix with dimensions \code{nsc} and \code{nfish} representing the number of individuals in each length class for the current time step.
#' @param phi A matrix with dimensions \code{nsc} and \code{nfish} representing the proportion of individuals that leave each length class.
#' @param nfish A numeric value representing the number of species in the model.
#' @param nsc A numeric value representing the number of length classes in the model.
#' @return A matrix with dimensions \code{nsc} and \code{nfish} representing the number of individuals of each species in each length class for the next time step.
