In this paper, we consider a prey-predator fishery model in a three â€“patch aquatic habitat with selective harvesting of predator and prey populations. We attempt to study the qualitative behaviour of stability and co-existence steady state solution in an interaction between prey and predator populations due to variation of the harvesting effort when other model parameters are fixed using the method of numerical simulation. The innovation of this simulation technique has been used to determine the fraction of harvest and un-harvest resource biomass for prey and predator populations. Explicit expressions and values of the maximum sustainable yield (MSY) and the corresponding populationsâ€™ level are obtained. Some sort of control is suggested to avoid over exploitation of resource biomass. Graphical solutions of the model are provided.
