Though, CEDA is very effective tool for estimating MSY values because it does not assume the population in equilibrium state. Previous research were based on equilibrium production models but later on it was studied that fishery stock is not in equilibrium state due to biological, physical and chemical properties of water changed it may cause change in stock.
Earlier studies were based on equilibrium production models but stocks are seldom in equilibrium state due to some biological, environmental factors and unmanaged fishing mortality which effects the population in this case non-equilibrium surplus production models are frequently used to know the state of stock.
So, we try to realize a dynamic equilibrium state through the adjustment and coordination measures which include the proportion of modes of transport and the spatial hierarchical structure of transport system between cities.
