Question

Suppose a population of fish at a farm follows logistic growth. The per capita birth rate is 0.7 fish per day, the per capita natural death rate is 0.2 fish per day, and the carrying capacity is 20000. Fish are harvested at a constant rate of 7000 fish per week.

Find the equilibrium solutions to the equation.

Answer #1

Given:

Per capita birth rate = 0.7 fish per day

Per capita death rate = 0.2 fish per day

Harvesting rate = 7000 fish per week

Let at any time Day D : Population (P)

0.7*(P) = New born fish on that day

0.2*(P) = Dead Fishes

Total population Next day Day (D+1) : P + 0.7*(P) - 0.2*(P) = 1.5*(P) =

on (D+2) = (1.5)^2 P

So in 7 days Final Population = (1.5)^7P

For equillibrium New fishes = harvested fishes

(1.5)^7P - P = 7000

16.0859 P = 7000

Around 436 fishes at time of equillibrium

(1.003505 -1)P = 7000

Then

P = 7000/0.003505 = 1997002 (Approx)

I hope help you.

Population Growth Equation
In the population growth equation, the letter “r” is defined as
the per capita rate of increase, which is the difference
between the per capita birth rate (the number of offspring produced
per unit of time by an average member of the population) and per
capita death rate (average number of deaths in the population per
unit time).
What does the value of “r” indicate
about a population?

Biologists stocked a lake with 300 fish and estimated the
carrying capacity (the maximal population for the fish of that
species in that lake) to be 7000. The number of fish doubled in the
first year.
(a) Assuming that the size of the fish population satisfies the
logistic equation
dP/dt =
kP(1−PK),
determine the constant k, and then solve the equation
to find an expression for the size of the population after
t years.
k =
P(t) =

In 1970, the global human population was 3.71 billion people.
The average global birth rate at that time was 3.1 per 100
individuals per year (0.031 per capita), and the average death rate
was 1.0 per 100 individuals per year. What was r (r=per capita
growth rate) for the human population at that time?

Why do both the overall population growth rate and the per
capita growth rate decrease as the size of the population
increases? Furthermore, if resources are limited, how would the per
capita share of resources change as population size increases?

c. How will simultaneous increases in the population growth rate
and the savings rate effect per-capita income in the “standard”
(constant returns to scale) Solow growth model? Show graphically,
and briefly explain. This is a “qualitative”, not a quantitative
question.

Suppose we have a whale population that has been declines to
1000 individuals. The growth rate is 2% a year and the carrying
capacity is 10,000. Calculate (use Excel) how many years are needed
to have the population recover to 5,000 or more, meaning that
during those years, no harvesting can take place. Once the
population is recovered, how many whales can be harvested per year
in a sustainable way?

The per capita growth rate of many species varies temporally for
a variety of reasons, including seasonality and habitat
destruction. Suppose n(t) represents the population size at time
t, where n is measured in individuals and
t is measured in years. Solve the following differential
equation.
Habitat destruction is modeled as
n' = (r − at)n n(0) =
n0.
Here the per capita growth rate declines over time, going from
positive to negative. It is modeled by the function r −...

You are studying the predator-prey relationship between lizards
(predator) and beetles (prey). The intrinsic growth rate of beetles
in the absence of lizards (r) is 0.2 per week, and the
mortality rate of lizards in the absence of beetles (m) is
0.1 per week. The attack rate (a) is 0.004, and the
efficiency at which beetle biomass is converted into lizard biomass
(b) is 0.25.
Assuming the interaction follows Lotka?Volterra dynamics,
changes in prey and predator population sizes are determined...
