Larval fish and the ctenophore, Mnemiopsis leidyi, are among the most important predators on the smaller zooplankton in Narragansett Bay. The biomass of both populations is input to the model by forcing functions that approximate extensive field observations in the bay of the spatial and temporal distributions of ctenophores (P. Kremer and Nixon, 1976) and fish larvae (Matthiessen, 1974). Figures 30 and 31 present the patterns of seasonal abundance used in the model.
