Trophic model of the coastal fisheries ecosystem of the west coast of peninsular Malaysia

A preliminary mass-balance trophic model was constructed for the coastal fisheries ecosystem of the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia (0- 120 m depth). The ecosystem was partitioned into 15 trophic groups, and biomasses for selected groups were obtained ...
