Tsou and Collie (2001) applied an eight-species multispecies virtual population analysis (MSVPA) on six important fish species on Georges Bank for 1978-92 to estimate predation mortalities of age-0 and age-1 fish.
Even so, multi-species population models, such as the forecasting section of multi-species virtual population analyses (analyses (MSVPA), which are used for assessing fish stocks and frequently use Ricker recruitment models, can result in potentially unrealistic scenarios involving the extinction of key stocks (e.g., ICES, 2005).
