We present a model to represent a food chain on the Turkish coast of the Black Sea. Using data from the anchovy landings in Turkey, optimal control of the harvesting rate of the anchovy population in a system of three ordinary differential equations (anchovy, jellyfish and zooplankton) will give management strategies. We also discuss the benefits of using food chain models rather than using single species models.

Joint work with Mahir Demir (Michigan State University, USA).
