BORMICON (BOReal MIgration and CONsumption model) is a simulation model including multispecies interaction and migrations. In this paper the model is used to investigate interactions between the Icelandic cod and capelin stocks. The main emphasis is on the spatial distribution of consumption of capelin by cod, cod growth, and the ability of the model to follow available data. The estimated effects of variations of capelin availability on the growth of cod are also investigated and compared to results obtained by other authors. Consumption according to model results is compared to consumption calculated directly from stomach content data using an evacuation rate model.
