Start or continue simulation.
Pause simulation.
Clear ocean and reseed.

Sharks are red; fish are yellow. Alter the values for Breeding Age and Starvation to change the behaviour of the simulator. The simulation will stop running when one population type drops to zero - the end is inevitable.

Wator is an implemention, in Clojurescript, of the predator/prey simulation described by A.K. Dewdney in "The Armchair Universe".
