- t0
The (theoretical) age at zero length (yr).

- k2
The VB growth coefficient after length L2 (yr-1).

- Linf2
The VB mean maximum length after length L2 (cm).

- L2
The length (or age if negative) at which growth switches from the first to second phase (cm or yr).

- Wb

- BH
Recruitment follows a Beverton-Holt (1) or Ricker (0) relationship.

**annual interval**natural mortality rate from age tR.- nL
The

**annual interval**natural mortality rate from length Ln.- Ln

- Rmax
The number of recruits at the carrying capacity (ind).

- Wa
The (extrapolated) weight of a 1 cm individual (g).

- fa
The (theoretical) fecundity of a 1 g female (eggs).

- q
The catchability (annual probability of capture) for a unit of effort.

- RPR
The relative proportion of recruits that are of the ecotype.
