You are correct that there are other models available, and we did consider other approaches.  Going forward we may or may not stick with Ecosim.  However, we are in the early stages of developing an ecosystem approach to fishery management in the Gulf of Mexico, and the primary purpose of our workshop is to demonstrate to the Gulf Council whether ecosystem modeling is a feasible way to approach some real world fishery issues.  Ecosim was selected is because, with a relatively short time frame involved until the workshop this fall, we decided to build upon the expertise of our Ecosystem SSC, which has several members who are familiar with Ecosim, and base the demonstration models on extending a Gulf of Mexico Ecosim model that Carl Walters has been working on.  I'm not an ecosystem modeling person myself, so we are focusing on the strengths of our Ecosystem SSC members to assist the contractors and evaluate the results.

I'll take a look at your website.  Up to now I haven't heard anybody say anything negative Ecosim.
