Simulation tools for management strategy evaluation are provided for the 'DLMtool' operating model to inform data-rich fisheries. 'MSEtool' provides complementary assessment models of varying complexity with standardized reporting, diagnostic tools for evaluating assessment models within closed-loop simulation, and helper functions for building more complex operating models and management procedures.
MSEtool is an extension of the DLMtool R package and provides simulation tools for management strategy evaluation informing data-rich fisheries. Find more information about DLMtool and MSEtool at http://datalimitedtoolkit.org/.
