This paper proposes a simple mathematical model forupstream fish migration along rivers. The model describes the fish migration along a river based on a mixed optimal control approach having swimming velocity, school size, and stopping time of migration as control variables. The optimization problem reduces to a variational inequality. Its explicit “viscosity” solution is presented with the dependence of the fish migration on river environment. To prove uniqueness of the solution to the…

A stochastic differential game approach toward animal migration

This paper theoretically suggests that the sub-additivity of the performance index, the index to be optimized through the migration, critically affects the resulting strategy, and the computational results with the established scheme are consistent with the theoretical predictions and support importance of the sub theadditivity property.

Biological population management based on a Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman equation with boundary blow up

Establishment of a long-term biological population management policy requires balancing its cost and utility/disutility. We approach this issue from the viewpoint of stochastic control as an

Effects of water currents on fish migration through a Feynman-type path integral approach under $\sqrt{8/3}$ Liouville-like quantum gravity surfaces

The mathematical analytic results show exact expression of an optimal strategy of a fish under imperfect information and uncertainty in the proposed stochastic differential model.

It is shown that the HJB equation has a unique viscosity solution and that the solution can be approximated with a finite difference scheme.



Cost-Minimizing Upstream Migration Strategy of Isolated and Schooling Fishes in 1-D Open Channel Flows

Fish migration in open channels, such as rivers and drainage canals, is a fundamental research topic of civil and environmental engineering. This paper establishes a new and simple mathematical

Numerical Simulation of a Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman Equation for Optimal Management Strategy of Released Plecoglossus Altivelis in River Systems

A stochastic differential equation model for population dynamics of released Plecoglossus altivelis (Ayu) in a river system subject to feeding damage by Phalacrocorax carbo (Great Cormorant) and

Key Behavioural Factors in a Self-Organised Fish School Model

A key result of this study is that the fish density in certain stationary states reaches values where each fish perceives each other; local interactions actually become global interactions.

Water Resource Models in the Mekong Basin: A Review

Future efforts should focus on optimising the use of existing model platforms for the Mekong, including structured comparison of multiple hydrological models to quantify errors and identify an optimum set of modelling tools for different applications.

Corresponding long-term shifts in stream temperature and invasive fish migration

By investigating historic trapping records of invasive sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) throughout tributaries to the Laurentian Great Lakes, we found that upstream spawning migration timing was

Potential Effects of Hydroelectric Dam Development in the Mekong River Basin on the Migration of Siamese Mud Carp (Henicorhynchus siamensis and H. lobatus) Elucidated by Otolith Microchemistry

The migration of Siamese mud carp (Henicorhynchus siamensis and H. lobatus) was studied using an otolith microchemistry technique, suggesting a population originating from a single natal origin but bypassing the waterfalls through a passable side channel where a major hydroelectric dam is planned.

Using a Fish-Based Model to Assess the Ecological Status of Lotic Systems in Serbia

Fish biotic indices have become common tools for measuring and monitoring the ecological status of aquatic ecosystems. In this study, we aimed to develop the first fish-based model for stream quality
