'Fishing mortality (F) is a model parameter representing the death rate due to fishing, Natural mortality (M) is a model parameter representing the death rate due to everything other than fishing, and total mortality (Z) is the population death rate. In multispecies or ecosystem models, there may be multiple sources of non-fishing mortality.'
