Nov 4, 2013 — Baton Rouge, LA — The Water Institute of the Gulf seeks proposals for numerical modeling of fish and shellfish community dynamics in Louisiana estuaries as part of a number of modeling improvements being conducted in support of Louisiana's 2017 Coastal Master Plan. Model development and testing will initially focus on community interactions among species within the Barataria and Pontchartrain Basins. Calibrated and validated models will be integrated, to the extent possible, with the landscape models (i.e., Integrated Compartment Models) being developed by master plan modeling teams.  The modeling suite will be used to provide CPRA with estimates of fish and shellfish community response to certain kinds of restoration and protection projects as part of the development of the 2017 Coastal Master Plan.
