Question 8. Recruitment (secondary production) modeling: What degree of differentiation is envisioned concerning:

Question 8 Response--The last question was addressed by only a few participants. Concerning secondary production modeling the initial focus should be on regions about which we possess fairly comprehensive empirical information such as the North Atlantic, Subarctic Pacific, the California Current, and some shelf regions. One might then focus on regions with less data such as the Antarctic, the Arctic and the equatorial Pacific. As to taxonomic groups, emphasis should be placed on species or orders that are characteristic of each region. In general they should include protozoa, calanoid and cyclopoid copepods, euphausiids, pelagic tunicates, and respective fish target species.
