In recent years the stock dynamic of Eastern Baltic Cod (EBC), an ecologically and commercially valuable species, has undergone unexpected changes. This development has prompted the need for simulation models to aid in providing good scientific advice for management strategies. However, a strong scientific connect between the advancing modeling and simulation methods and the domain scientist equipped with intimate knowledge of the Baltic and EBC has not yet been established. Therefore, for any modeling and simulation effort in this domain to have an impact, bridging this gap is vital. Hence, points like choice of best modeling approach and understandable notation such as rule-based or even graphical ones are explored. Managing the complexity of the domain is supported by a component based approach in development together with successive systematic validation. Here progress and future work of reducing the gap for a simulation model on EBC are discussed.
