This document details the various components of the Operating Model (OM) used to simulation test candidate Management Procedures (CMPs) during the development of an anchovy‐only OMP‐18rev. It differs from de Moor (2020b) through the exclusion of all sardine components, including the previously assumed correlation between anchovy and sardine survey observations and the potential closure of the anchovy fishery due to an OMP calculated small sardine TAB with anchovy directed fishing being reached. A summary of assumptions made in this OM are listed below. Appendix A provides the full details, with data used listed in the tables at the end of the Appendix.
