In the formulation of fisheries management plans required under the
Fisheries Conservation and Management Act of 1976 specific attention is
paid to the "capacity" of domestic fishing vessels to harvest the predetermined

this thesis as the technical harvesting potential of...
In this thesis an introduction to simulation and object oriented programming discusses the need for
the creation of several classes which directly support object oriented simulation. The author places no
restrictions on the type of simulations that can be conducted and simulation practitioners will find that the
classes provided lay...
The western North Atlantic population of the northern right whale (Eubalaena
