A protocol for the intercomparison of marine fishery and ecosystem models: Fish-MIP v1.0.

Model intercomparison studies are crucial to building credibility and coherence for future projections. This paper describes the Fisheries and Marine Ecosystem Model Intercomparison Project (Fish-MIP) and the protocol for the first round of simulations for interested marine ecosystem modelling groups. This protocol is designed to allow heterogeneous models to be forced with standardized Earth system model outputs under prescribed emission and fishing scenarios for historic and future time periods, thus allowing for a systematic comparison of results. Ultimately, Fish-MIP represents a step towards bringing together the marine ecosystem modelling community to produce consistent ensemble medium- and long-term projections of marine ecosystems.
