The AQUATOX aquatic ecosystem model contains constructs that represent responses of biological entities to numerous environmental factors, and simulations can include many taxa. Because large numbers of parameters must be chosen before simulations can take place, calibration of the model can be a daunting task, especially for novice users. The existence of a parameter set that can be used off the shelf potentially represents a great time and effort saver. This note describes development of one such parameter set, for photosynthetic algae in small to medium-sized shallow rivers in temperate North America.
