Short summary
Ecosystem-based marine management requires coupling/integrating multiple models in one unified scheme. The widely adopted Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) is potentially a crucial high trophic level component of such schemes. However, being written in Visual Basic, integration of EwE with physical and/or biogeochemical oceanographic models, which were mostly written in Fortran, is complicated. We release a re-coding of EwE in Fortran (EwE-F) so as to facilitate its coupling/integration in such schemes.
