Abstract

•AQUATOX was modified to represent 4 major habitat types for Northern Gulf of Mexico including estuarine soft-bottom habitats, oyster-reef habitats, marsh-edge and beach habitats.•The ecosystem model was calibrated to represent several sub-habitats with different wave energy spectra for beaches, different submerged aquatic vegetation scenarios, and various environmental gradients in oyster reefs.•Annual primary, secondary and tertiary productivity estimates were calculated for use in Natural Resource Damage Assessments in Mississippi and Alabama.
