The Working Group on Integrative Physical-Biological and Ecosystem Modelling (WGIPEM) met in Oristano, Italy, on 13–15 June 2017. Presentations of the latest mod-elling work done within WGIPEM ToRs were given in plenary. End-to-end models (Atlantis, Osmose) have been used to explore trade-offs between fishing strategies, in the context of MSY targets. While validation of integrated model output is required to be used for advice, a comparison of different performance indices illustrated that the perception of the goodness-of-fit of complex models (e.g. ISIS-Fish) depends on the metrics and visualization tools used. Several tools have also been presented and dis-cussed within the group, among which a R-package to handle outputs of Atlantis model and create various plots and another R-package to display model results in a friendly-form, easier for communicating them to stakeholders.
