Abstract

In this paper we present a deterministic and continuous model for one prey–one predator population model based on Lotka-Volterra model. The predator population is subjected to both constant effort and constant quota of harvesting. We study analytically the sufficient conditions of harvesting to ensure the stability of the equilibrium point. The method used to analyze the stability of the equilibrium point is linearization and Hurwitz stability test. The results show that the equilibrium point which occurs in positive quadrant is stable although the predator population is subjected to harvesting. This means that the prey and predator populations can live in coexistence although the predator is harvested provided the level of harvesting is controlled. Some examples are given to illustrate the behavior of the trajectories.
