Fish Population 1 Introduction this lab, you will use the logistic equation model and study several populations fish living suburban lake. Using basic numerical and qualitative techniques, you will study how the trout population evolve over time both with and without harvesting 2 Mathematical Model Suppose that suburban lake stocked with three types fish: rainbow trout (R). brown trout (T). and bass (B). the absence any predation harvesting each of these populations fish may be modeled with the logistic equation (1) where g(f) the size of the fish population (in hundreds of fish) at any given time (days), the parameter >Ois the initial growth population, and >ois the carrying capacity the population. Keep mind the accuracy any predictions based on the logistic model depends upon whether the parameters and are constant Now suppose that the Lake has been opened for fishing (ie "harvesting") and assume for sim- plicity that humans the only predators the fish. To make sure that the lake over- fished tomodel how fishing It is straightforward to adjust the logistic equation (1) include harvesting. h(f) the amount harvesting taking place at time then one way change the model is Now reasonable assume that amount harvesting depends on the number of nish in the lake. (After all, there are more fish the lake then easier catch them.) So let's measure the amount harvesting terms (amount fish) instead terms off Then the model is (2) A reasonable harvesting function could be pg2 h(g) q+y² (3) where the parameters and represent how good the locals are at catching fish. Finally notice that fwe define the right-hand side of the equation (4) then wecan rewrite the differential equation(2)as s'(t) (g) Section Questions 1. What are the units of the parameters and L? (Remember what the units of and t are.) 2. Use separation of variables solve(1) analytically (i.e. no harvesting) 3. Solve (1)or the general form the (de not use specific values of L). 4. Classify the dific erontial equation(2). Isi linear? Isit homogeneous] What sits degree? i t what does fnon- autonomy mean physically forthis problem)? 5. Set but DO NOT solve the integnals that one gets when sparation variables done on model (2) (i.e., with harvesting). Suggest an analytical technique that could be used to evaluate the integrals. 6. Explore the harvesting function h(g). What happens h(g) as gets very large? What if y close to 07 Does this make sense physically? (It may help totry graphing h(y).) 3 Numerical Investigation of (1) Let p= 1.2 and Since there are three species of fish in the lake we would need to investigate population growth species individually, Suppose fish species have the same natural growth rate 0.65 but the carrying capacities different each the species. Rainbow trout have LR =5.4 brown trout have La 8.1. and have LB = 16.3.

Suppose all the fish species have the same natural growth rate 0.65 but the capacities are differen each the specles.

There may be various issues consider explain your decision. 5. Discuss these questions briefly with your own Are there any weaknesses in the model used? How do think could improved? Do you think there are additional effects the model should account for?
