FLBEIA is a simulation toolbox implemented as an R library (www.r-project.org) which facilitates the development of bio-economic impact assessments of fisheries management strategies. It is built under a management strategy evaluation framework using FLR libraries (www.flr-project.org/). The simulation is divided in two worlds, the operating model (OM, the real world) and the management procedure model (MPM, the perceived world). The OM in turn is divided in 3 components, the biological component formed by the stocks, the fleets component and the covariates component. MPM is divided also in 3 components; the data, the perceived system and the advice. A conceptual diagram of the model is shown in next figure:
