The BiOeconomic mArine Trophic Size-spectrum (BOATS) model simulates the global fishery as a coupled ecological-economic system. The growth and reproduction of multiple fish size spectra are predicted at each grid cell on the globe from local water temperature and net primary production, which can be provided from observational data or a coupled biogeochemical-climate model (Carozza GMD 2016). The evolution of fishing effort in each grid cell occurs as a function of the economic profit (Carozza PLoS 2017).
